It’s great news that the historic brick works at Claughton near Lancaster has resumed production.

The brick works had been ‘mothballed’ for a few years due to a slump in the construction industry.

Whether its due to an upturn in the economy or initiatives like the Government’s ‘Help To Buy’ scheme, it is hugely positive for the workers at Claughton who are delighted to have their jobs back.

We hope the brick works will continue to go from strength to strength.

Dog dirt is a controversial subject and the latest idea to cope with it – issuing residents with cheap cameras so that they can spy Big Brother-style on dogs and their owners – is quirky to say the least.

It may be an odd-ball idea, but something drastic needs to be done to tackle the terrible problem of dog fouling. In some areas it has reached epidemic proportions.

This problem needs a radical solution.
