A seven-year-old girl has been filmed for a new television programme after campaigning against dog fouling on her walk to school.

Grace Munton-Hague put up posters in the alley between The Grove and Bramley Road in Market Deeping after becoming fed up with dodging dog dirt on her school route.

Her campaign was picked up by the town and district councils and signs were put up warning dog owners to clear up after their pets.

And on Thursday last week production company Leopard Films paid Grace and her mum Louisa Crowson a visit to shoot part of a BBC series about the fight against anti-social behaviour.

Louisa said: “They filmed her doing her usual activities, reconstructing her walk to school and making the posters.

“She enjoyed the day and is looking forward to seeing herself on TV.”

The programme is due to air in the autumn.
