The Great Dog Poo Debate.

It might not be what everyone would like to listen to first thing in the morning but TBG can exclusively reveal that Portsmouth City Council Leader Donna Jones and former Leader Gerald Vernon Jackson are set to go head-to-head in a debate about the issue of dog poo in the city on BBC Local Radio today.

The issue has come under the spotlight since Liberal Democrats Councillor Lynne Stagg caused a stink by taking a bag of it into the Guildhall last week.

Lynne and fellow Baffins councillor Darren Sanders have both been roundly ridiculed for the stunt in the local media and by local Conservatives.
