Summer ban for dogs on beaches.

DOG walkers are being reminded of summer beach restrictions coming into force next week.

The dog ban on Whitley Bay south, Cullercoats Bay, King Edwards and Tynemouth Longsands south runs from May 1 to September 30.

Signs are displayed at every location and breaking the law could lead to prosecution.

Environmental protection officers from North Tyneside Council have been out on the beaches advising pet owners of the upcoming seasonal ban.

Mayor Linda Arkley said: "Our beaches are one of North Tyneside's biggest attractions.

"We have more awards for our beaches than any other area of the region, but to ensure we maintain their Blue Flag status, a dog ban needs to be in place during the summer."

Dogs can be walked on the section of Whitley Bay beach north of Panama Gardens and at the northern end of Tynemouth Longsands, towards Cullercoats.
