Fingal County Council has issued a swimming ban at Loughshinny Beach due to 'visual reports of sewage pollution'.

The temporary 'do not swim' notice was issued by Fingal County Council yesterday and is expected to last for six days. A drainage investigation has started and it's noted that the most likely cause is 'discharge from wastewater network'.
