AN irresponsible dog owner is being blamed after the public toilets at Pittenweem Harbour were forced to be shut up at evenings.

Fife Council officials have decided to take the step due to the disgusting condition that the toilets were being left in.

Following discussions between area councillor Mike Scott-Hayward and the local community council, the filth was blamed on a female dog owner who had been allowing her pet to defecate on the premises and then walk away without clearing up after it.

Cllr Scott-Hayward slammed the culprit and hopes they’ll be caught.

He said: “This, if true, is selfish and stupid behaviour and I have asked for the dog warden to be alerted.

“Anyone able to identify the culprit should inform council officers so that action against them can be considered.”
