...roaming dogs not

Amsterdam officials worried about peeing dogs have banned unleashed pooches from one of the city's most famous parks - while legalising public sex.

Councillors reportedly gave the green light to heterosexual and gay trysts in the Vondelpark, which has a whopping 10 million visitors a year.

But at the same time they pledged to get tough on dog owners who dare let their pets roam the park unleashed.

One dog owner told "As long as the park has existed, we've been allowed to let our dogs run freely. It's outrageous that we will be punished from now on but public sex won't."

A spokesman for the council which runs the southern part of Amsterdam added: "When the dogs are not kept on a leash they pee on whatever they see and they cause a lot of nuisance for other visitors."

Public sex will be allowed in the park from September.
