Devon beaches dog ban comes into force

A ban has come into force to stop dogs going on parts of several beaches in east Devon.

Beer, Budleigh Salterton, Exmouth, Seaton and Sidmouth all now have dog-free areas which are signposted, East Devon District Council said.

Enforcement officers will be doing spot checks and can hand out fixed penalty notices of £80 to anyone caught breaking the rules, the authority said.

The restricted areas are in place until the end of September.
