WALKERS out for a weekend stroll came across an unusual sight of an exploded dog poo bin in South Woodham Ferrers.

Dog walker Mark Fox found the remains of the dog waste disposal bin along Creekview in the town on Saturday morning.

Shreds of the bin were strewn all over the field around where it used to stand, with bags of dog waste also thrown around in the debris.

It is unclear how the damage was caused, but reports have been made online that other bins had been targeted by setting off fireworks inside.
