Sergeant Mark McQuade of the Castle Point neighbourhood team for Essex Police, has pledged to offer police support to help tackle the on-going problem.
Sergeant McQuade said: “If there is a problem with dog fouling, just tell us roughly where and what time this is taking place then I will do my best to get an officer down there to check it out.”"Right, you 'orrible lot! We've had reports of a dog turd on Canvey Seafront! You! Go down there and look into it!"
