Reports of palm oil on North Norfolk beaches

dog on beach

North Norfolk District Council is responding to reports that palm oil has been found on beaches in the area. 

The coast between Bacton and Mundesley is believed to be affected. 

These are the beaches that dog walkers are being asked to avoid:

Palm oil isn't toxic to humans but it is to dogs and the council are asking walkers to avoid the beaches for the forseeable future. 

They are currently working with other agencies to respond appropriately to the situation.  

Earlier this year a dog died from eating a dead fish that had washed up on our coast, but the beaches have now been declared safe.
