Following an article last week on an overflowing dog waste bin, the council worker responsible for the bins has been in touch.
John Myles contacted us after seeing the picture of the over-stuffed dog bin at Arbroath cliffs.
The picture in question had been taken by a reader and sent in on Tuesday.
According to Mr Myles this was an isolated occurrence.
He explained: “The dog bin was blocked, it wasn’t full, somebody has squeezed rubbish in it.
“They get emptied every Monday and Thursday and we do a good job.
“There’s plenty of dog bins up in that area and they all get emptied regularly.”
