No complaints have been made about people breaching new dog exclusion orders introduced in the Isle.

North Lincolnshire Council has banned dogs from certain public areas - including schools and leisure centres - following a public consultation.

However, since the introduction of the new law last month council chiefs confirmed they have received no complaints.

A council spokesman said that the new orders had been successful but warned that those caught breaching them could be fined or prosecuted.

She added: “We rely on the public to inform us if any dogs enter these areas.”

The plans sparked protest from dog owners who branded the rules ‘too excessive’.
