CAMDEN COUNCIL'S plan to restrict free running dogs to small exercise areas is a recipe for noisy mayhem - just imagine! The majority of dog owners keep their dogs under control even when off the lead and clean up (especially where there are dog waste bins).

As with any activity, there are always the careless, the irresponsible, and the downright wicked who give rise to the occasional awful incidents that are reported.

But there are already sufficient laws in place to deal with such people and their dogs if they are caught. Such people will continue their behaviour regardless and the new laws will not make it any easier to catch them.

I have been walking generations of dogs on the Heath for over 40 years, and I have never come across anything other than reasonably behaved dogs (and people).
