Have Southwark Council turned to sorcery in their fight against dog mess? Reader James Hodge sends us this photo from his hexed park in Leathermarket Street. The use of bewitchments could be a useful cost-saving measure in these credit-crunched times. Which malefactors would you most like to see your council put a jinx on?

It's a good idea if the plonkers could read...the owners not the dogs...
cursing is all some people understand anyway..

Fantastic!

I think it's far more fun than just threatening fines.
Who knows it might even work better.

Can we have some round here?

I walk my neighbour's dog Mon-Fri and thought the sign to be rather amusing, in a quirky way. The days of anyone with a pet being someone who is, perhaps, more responsible than others are long gone, although, in the main, it still applies.

I still see owners completely devoid of bags, thinking that the earth will deal with it. Try telling the sunbathers that!

A better presence by the Community Wardens and Police might help. Talk about 'Ghosts in the Night' :p

I'm disappointed, I thought it was a great sign. Do we think it was Leathermarket TMO that fitted it? Maybe someone liked it too much and nicked it.
