Earlier this week the council warned pet owners to keep their dogs off the coastline after reports that some had become sick after walking on Whitmore Beach.

The council says an investigation found no evidence that the water and surrounding coastal areas posed any risk to animals or humans.

Water tests found no contaminants in the water. Both beaches will now be raked and cleaned as a precautionary measure.

Vale of Glamorgan Council is now advising all visitors that there is no evidence of any of risk to dogs on the beaches and "looks forward to welcoming dog walkers back to the sands".

Warning signs put-up earlier this week will now be removed.
