Durham County Council’s neighbourhood protection team removed 20 stray dogs during January and issued one stray dog warning letter.

It also investigated 11 reports of dog fouling and issued two fixed penalty notices for the offence.

Sixty-eight incidents of fly tipping were reported in January with one householder duty of care letter and two duty of care inspections carried out.

The council team has issued six advisory letters and six litter clearing notices to residents with untidy gardens or yards.

Three fixed penalty notices were given to homeowners who failed to tidy their properties.

The council team also dealt with 19 anti-social incidents and one report of littering during January.

I know fly tipping is wrong but at the tip in Northallerton, its a nightmare dumping your rubbish, Hambleton Council (need i say more) insist you have stickers for your car to say you live there, and close the place on a Wednesday.

When you do get in there, a 6,2 inch ape of a male carries on like the Gestapo, and rips your bags open checking for things, and swears at anyone that answers back.

Several times I see him jumping in the skips without isolating the power supply, trying to get things out.

I now take my rubbish to Stockton, they are great there, and even give you a hand, nothing like the Northallerton numpties.

No wonder people fly tip if they have to put up with the bureaucracy and staff like at Northallerton.
