SEATON residents are angry at dog owners who are failing to clean up after their pets.
East Devon District Council's Environmental Health Service has received complaints over increased dog fouling in Harepath Road - especially around the health centre and primary school.
Young mum Emma Taylor said she is fed up with her buggy wheels getting covered in dog mess and says many children are treading in it on their way to and from school.
Blind resident John Barrington-Rowell said he has had to resort to leaving his cane in a jar of disinfectant as it regularly becomes covered by dog faeces.
