Report on cattle feces/ poop spillage on public footpath near Belton -in -Rutland village.

Large piles of cattle feces/poop positioning next to the public footpath has caused significant public health problems. Cattle feces/ poop washed onto the public footpath by rains have containmented the whole footpath next to the farm yard and leaked to the entrance of a nearby public footpath. The whole affected area is about at least 30 metres long outside the farm yard. The public footpath is frequently used by walkers, dog walks and horse riders. It is concerning that the spilled feces may cause the spreading of diseases. And this issue has deterred the general public from using the footpath. This problems have been persistent for at least 3 years. The photos clearly show the extent of the problem.
