Dog owners have called the new secure dog field "an excellent addition to the city".

The Claines Secure Dog Field officially opened its doors to the public allowing pet owners to safely let their dogs off the lead for playtime.

Bridget Hill, of Claines, was visiting the facility with her dog and praised the excellent facility.

She said: "It's an excellent addition to the city, it is safe and secure and offers so much room for dogs to run around.

"The location is ideal as well and the scenery is beautiful. It is a fantastic place to bring your dog."

The field, located on School Bank in Claines, is owned by R H Phillips & Co, which operate an existing agricultural business based at Church Farm, Cornmeadow Lane, Claines.

The 5ft high fencing runs around the entirety of the park, and access is gained by a keypad on the entry gate.

The park also features tyres and logs for dogs to play amongst during their visit to the field.
