Dogs are not being banned from Morecambe's beaches until national movement restrictions are lifted.

"With rules around social distancing reducing people’s ability to walk their dogs, the restrictions will not now come into force until national movement restrictions are lifted.

"Please remember though that we should all only be leaving home when strictly necessary, more information on which is available here: www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

"Please also remember though that you’ll still need to ‘pick up’ after your dog and dispose of your bags in the litter bins provided."
