Dog walkers are ignoring restrictions

I have just spent half an hour sitting near the cliff lift on West Cliff watching people enjoying themselves on the beach.

Some of them even had their dogs with them within the restricted area.

In fact I counted seven dogs, from a little jack Russell to a Labrador.

Can’t these people read? Or maybe they can read the signs but they know that there is no dog warden service operating in Whitby so they know they are safe.

Have any fellow readers seen a dog warden in town doing his job?
