Restrictions imposed at a Pembrokeshire reservoir after high levels of a potentially toxic blue-green algae were found have been lifted.

Environment Agency Wales tests have shown the naturally occurring algae at Llysyfran have subsided.

Water based activities were put on hold at the end of July.

People had also been told to avoid eating fish caught in the reservoir and not to allow pets or livestock into the water.

Welsh Water said restrictions had been lifted and activities could resume.

The build-up of algae occurs during warm conditions.
