FRANK FIELD is being economical with the truth when he claims his “dog foul” meeting in Oxton on March 9 had “already galvanised the council into action. There will be a doubling of the officers on dog patrol”. (Wirral News March 14).
This proposal was actually agreed by the council’s cabinet on February 21 – 17 days before the meeting!
It is also a fact that his own Labour party’s budget proposals omitted to provide the funding for the extra officers.
GLAD to see the increase in dog wardens and bringing to task “irresponsible dog owners”.
We have a standard poodle and dote on this animal.
My partner was pulled up one day to show a “foul” that our dog had left.
My partner argued that it was not our dog’s. He was issued with a £50 fine.
We tried to appeal, we were told that they had filmed her “fouling”. We asked to see the film and were told that the Data Protection Act would not allow this.
I am outraged that there is no appeal in this area.
IN reply to the lady from Wallasey regarding the Chinese lanterns sighted as UFOs, I can confirm her theory.
At about the same time of the sightings I was taking a walk along the shore line at Moreton when I came across litter strewn all over the coastal path. Closer inspection revealed it was quite a number of empty Chinese lantern packages. Incidentally there was a rubbish bin not 25 yards away!
JUST to clarify the “mystery UFO” story.
In response to Audrey Moore, I didn’t see a UFO or a Chinese lantern it was the meteor that was spotted by hundreds of people across the UK that Saturday night. I never said it was a UFO, the three men outside Arrowe Park Hospital thought it was as they looked at the sky.
I knew it was a meteor and this was confirmed by the early morning news reports. I’m sure more people from Wirral must have spotted it as well.
