Volunteer warden with uniform and body camera leading the fight against dog mess in town

A community spirited resident is continuing to clear the streets of dog mess in his town.

Stuart Maw and other residents in Winterton complained in February last year that there had been a number of incidents of dog fouling – and were urging the council to do something about it.

Since then, Stuart has continued to go out and clean up the streets in his own time as a volunteer dog warden and said he has come across hundreds of incidents.

Armed with a uniform consisting of a vest, a body camera and bags, Stuart takes to the streets of Winterton most days to clean up any dog mess he comes across and urge dog owners to pick up after their pets.

He is has set up a Facebook page called Winterton Dog Fouling Action and is still calling for a dog warden to be provided for the community.

He said: "Since last February, things have not really got any better. I always toyed with the idea of being a volunteer dog fouling warden in the hope that the town council or North Lincolnshire Council would take someone on to do it.
