WARNING to dog owners re Sutton Heath enclosed dog exercise area.

Polly in Ufford
This is no longer enclosed! A car has driven through the fence, smashing it all down and been abandoned in the middle. Dogs can easily run on to the road. This is not obvious to humans until you see from close up where the fence has gone.
