A Penzance vet is advising dog owners to be "extremely careful".

A dog has died and others are ill after coming into contact with rancid cooking oil washing up on our beaches.

It is not harmful to people but more may wash up.

We are being advised to keep pets on leads this weekend.

Luke Stevens, from Mounts Bay veterinary centre, treated the dog. He said: "What we found at the time of surgery was this very pungent smell that we then linked with this white material, so our first concern was that is this substance toxic to animals.

"Vomiting is the first sign it seems, this particular animal went into what looked like severe abdominal discomfort, so if the dog is grunting and groaning and very lethargic, then get in touch with a vet straight away."
