Kings Cross crap

It is an offence if owners do not clean up after their dog has fouled public land. The fine is usually a £50 fixed penalty notice.

Police also considered a public order offence of causing "harassment, alarm or distress". This criminal offence carries a maximum fine of £1,000.

But after a six-week investigation, in which senior officers were consulted, the decision was made to take no further action.
