A campaign is being launched in East Sussex to target people who do not clear up after their dog.

Lewes District Council will urge people to use bins provided, from which 150 tonnes of dog waste are emptied each year.

Council officers will be at Lewes Road Recreation ground on Monday giving advice and handing out dog waste bags.

"The majority of dog owners are responsible," said the council, but those who do not face a £1,000 fine.
