Dog Ban Flouted on Cornish Beaches

Pirate FM's learnt dog bans on Cornish beaches are being ignored.

Four owners took their pets onto Porthtowan in twenty minutes, even though they have been banned since the weekend.

One group walked away as it went to the toilet on the blue flag beach - as children played nearby.

A sign at the entrance to the beach warns people who flout the rules could risk a £100 fine or a court appearance, but some owners say it is confusing because the rules are different on different beaches.

One dog walker said: "She's walking from the lead so she's not going to upset anyone else. If you've got dogs running around all over the place then, yeah, I can see it's annoying. But if you're responsible and have your dog on a lead then children are more annoying I think - knowing my two.

"It's very confusing as to where she's allowed to go and where she's not allowed to go."

Some beaches have total bans in place after Easter, others have bans for certain areas or at particular times.

The council says the details are available on its website.

Kevin Brader from County Hall said: "With dogs in particular it tends to polarise communities. There are a certain number of beaches that are designated 'Dog Free Beaches' or have dog free areas of the beaches. Similarly there are beaches within Cornwall that are available for dog owners to use.

"They need to look at signs on the beach and pay attention to what those signs say. Do your research before you go to the beach - that information is available on the internet, so you can locate dog friendly beaches before you go out."
