Meet the “fussy bitch” who has been causing a bit of a stir among A12 drivers.

The Basset Hound, nicknamed Betty, is the star of a cheeky ad campaign for Marks Tey Discount Pet Foods in Coggeshall Road, which advises drivers on the A12 to visit them for help with their pets’ diets.

An advert on the other side of the board, which featured a fat cat, has been censored by the family run business just in case it caused any offence.

Pictures of the eye-catching billboard on the southbound carriage near Kelvedon have been shared across Facebook.

Manager Dan Atkins said: “We never set out to offend anyone, it is just a little bit of a laugh and I think people have taken it that way."
