BUSTED singer James Bourne has attacked dog owners for refusing to clear up their pets' mess after they relieve themselves on the street.

The WHAT I GO TO SCHOOL FOR star is disgusted at people who take their dogs out when it's dark to avoid being seen - and he's urging owners to ignore their embarrassment and concentrate on keeping pavements clean.

He rants, "I don't understand how people can leave their dog's poo in the road. Why don't they clear it up? Are they embarrassed or something? If it's your dog, you must love it - so why can't you pick up after it?

"I hate the way people walk their dogs at night so they don't get caught not picking up the poo. It's wrong."
