A HUDDERSFIELD shop owner has kicked up a stink over police horse muck.
Roger Whiteley, of Roger David hair salon, was furious horse droppings were left on a pavement in Northumberland Street in the town centre for two weeks after the mounted division had been called in to quell trouble with visiting Hull City soccer supporters.
Ten people were arrested in the most high-profile policing operation of Huddersfield Town's season so far on Saturday, November 15.
"The horses did droppings big time all over the pavement and some 14 days later it was still there," said an outraged Mr Whiteley.
He said everyone else was expected to clean up after their animals.
"If it was any of us members of the public I think the police would do something about it."
He added that the police should set an example.
"It covered several metres. People have remarked about it to me."
A spokeswoman for Kirklees Council apologised that the droppings had not been cleared away sooner and said a team had been sent out to remove the mess.
