BLOOMS of suspected blue-green algae have been noted at Loch Ore at Lochore Meadows.

Blue-green algae poses risks to public and animal health when they form blooms and scums in freshwater in warm summer months.

In people, exposure to the blue-green algae toxins may cause skin rashes and more severe symptoms if swallowed.

Dogs are also at risk if they drink the water or lick their coats after swimming; exposure may be fatal or lead to severe symptoms requiring very rapid vet treatment.

Please keep yourselves and your dogs away from affected water bodies.
