A dog mess bag has been seen lying on the sand by the River Orwell by police. 

Suffolk police's rural police reacted with anger to seeing the bag left by a dog owner today (Sunday, August 15) while out on patrol. 

The officers told the dog owner in a public message: "There must be something wrong with your dog's diet If your doggie poo weighs so much that you can't carry it.

"This is not good for our wildlife. Please be responsible and take it with you to the nearest poo bin."

The park and surrounding area is within the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is designated as a protected area under that designation.
