I WOULD like to make a polite appeal to members of the public who take their dogs for walks at Leigh Cemetery on Manchester Road.

I take my mother every weekend and I have witnessed people walking over graves with their dogs.

I recently saw an elderly couple walk over graves with their patterdale dog, seemingly thinking it was perfectly normal and showing no respect.

These days you cannot say anything to people doing such things as you risk abuse or even worse.

Please don’t walk over the graves with your dogs.
