There is no firm estimate yet of how long disruption will last but it is likely to continue until at least 14:30.
Several beaches across the region have been awarded the coveted Blue Flag for the quality of their water and management.

The Yorkshire Cancer Research charity has announced it will fund £1.5 million pounds of research into whether Omega-3 can help prevent bowel cancer returning after surgery.
Four-hundred-and-fifty patients will take part in the study which has been announced to mark International Clinical Trials Day.
Some of the patients who are having surgery to treat bowel cancer which has spread to the liver will be given a concentrated form of Omega-3, while others will be given a placebo, to see if long-term treatment improves survival.
Around 15 per cent of all liver surgery for bowel cancer in the UK is performed in Yorkshire.
The study follows earlier investigations funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research, which tested the effect of EPA on cancer cells in the lab. The team also conducted a small, preliminary 'window' trial, which suggested some survival benefit.
We are extremely proud to be funding our first Phase III clinical trial. This is a highly significant development in our new strategy to drive major improvements in cancer outcomes in Yorkshire. By bringing more clinical trials to the region we will ensure patients have better access to pioneering treatment.
