The mess left by pesky pigeons at Dumbarton East station is putting off visitors heading to the town’s castle, according to Dumbarton East Community Council.

Members want netting to be put up under the station bridge to stop the pigeons perching on the girders.

The council is considering applying to the Common Good Fund for the £30,000 needed for the netting which would prevent the birds creating a mess on the pavements.

A recent meeting heard that getting rid of the mess was an important issue for the station as it is the dropping off point, both for visitors to the castle and residents who have to put up with the problem on a permanent basis.
