Southport Visiter - - Front Page -

TWO peo­ple were fined hun­dreds of pounds af­ter their dog was “dan­ger­ously” out of con­trol at Duke Street ceme­tery in Southport.

The in­ci­dent took place last Oc­to­ber and owner He­len Far­nan of Ch­es­nut Street and Colin McIver, of Maple Street, who was in charge of the dog at the time, were fined £575 and £757.

The dog, a bull mas­tiff/ Ger­man shepherd cross has to be neutered and on a lead with a muz­zle at all times in a pub­lic place.

In an­other case, a dog owned by Vir­ginia Creggy, of Palmer­ston Drive, Lither­land, strayed with­out a col­lar or tag in Novem­ber 2016.

Ev­i­dence pre­sented to the South Sefton Mag­is­trate’s Court showed that the dog’s mi­crochip de­tails were in­cor­rect, and the owner had failed to com­ply with a no­tice to up­date the de­tails. She was fined more than £300.

Sefton Coun­cil is once again re­mind­ing peo­ple that it is an of­fence to not have dogs mi­crochipped af­ter the change in the law last year.
