Blackburn councillor backs Royal Mail post suspension decision

Blackburn Citizen: Coun Shorrock Coun Shorrock

A BLACKBURN councillor has backed the Royal Mail’s decision to suspend postal deliveries to a whole street after a post man was bitten by a dog.

Shadsworth and Whitebirk councillor Jim Shorrock said: “Considering that Blackburn has just been in the news after a very serious dog attack, I think that everything possible should be done to ensure that people are safe on the streets and that dangerous dogs are not allowed to be kept “Dangerous dogs are a real problem and the post office has a duty to protect its workers.”

We all back Royal Mail not to send anymore postmen on this street until people keep their dangerous dogs in their in the house away from gardens and streets. We had a little baby girl killed by a dangerous dog a young girl attacked now a postman was bitten by a irresponsible owner.
The town is full of dog mess in the streets,children play area and public parks. Some folks even bring dogs to town centre for shopping .
It's about time Council and the Police get tough on irresponsible dangerous dog owners.

I slightly agree with it but why should others be punished for one irresponsible adult. And children play areas are covered in broken glass. Burnt bins. Rubbish. As most dog owners pick up after their dogs !
