Council cleaners tasked with clearing dog mess package left for South Thanet MP

Someone left a message for South Thanet MP Craig Mackinlay

Thanet council street cleaners had to remove a pile of dog faeces thought to have been left as a dirty protest outside the Broadstairs offices of South Thanet MP Craig Mackinlay.

The unpleasant pile was dumped outside the office door at some point on Sunday (August 4).

A Thanet council spokesperson said: “Our street cleansing teams work hard removing litter and refuse across the district’s streets and public open spaces and this is just one example of them going above and beyond what is expected of them and carrying out their duties with dedication and pride.”

Mr Mackinlay said this was the second time his office has been targeted with this kind of protest.

He said: “Thanks go to TDC street cleaners who cleaned the worst of it over the weekend. Only a small mess greeted my staff in the morning.

“We had a similar event a few weeks ago, with a staff member giving chase.”
