More dangers in park than dogs off leads

Yet more petty officialdom this time directed at the long suffering dog owner.

We were disappointed in no small measure to be confronted by a notice on the railings of Jephson Gardens that dogs should remain on the lead or be fined £1,000.

We know our dogs to be friendly and we know that those who aren’t are kept muzzled and controlled by their owners.

There are far more serious dangers in the park which should be dealt with: litter being number one with broken bottles and sharp tins the worst; plastic bags; left over food; rats in waiting; bird excretia around the lake; and even the fear of being locked in as no warning is given before this.

Maybe we should go elsewhere to shop and relax and avoid Royal Leamington Spa. - P Lambert, Clarendon Road, Kenilworth.
