  • The reporter is confused. If the dog in question, really is: "on carriegway between 'Reg Vardy' Roundabout and 'football stadium' roundabout A66 bypass Darlington." ... then the indicated position on the map (well west of "Reg Vardy roundabout" ) is incorrect. This will waste the (costly) time of council employees, trying to find it.
