A Narberth dog owner has been ordered by Haverfordwest Magistrates to pay over £1,800 after repeatedly failing to keep her dogs under control and allowing persistent barking.

Having been served with an abatement notice under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 by Pembrokeshire County Council, Catherine Jones, of Robeston Wathen repeatedly contravened a prohibition without reasonable excuse, in that she failed to prohibit the recurrence of the persistent barking of dogs, causing a nuisance. Fine: £220

In addition, court found the 51-year-old had repeatedly failed to secure control of the dogs, which is an offence under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. Fine: £220

Costs of £1,200 and £176 to victim services were added to the fines.
