Shellfish warning sign, Low Newton-by-the-Sea
Shellfish warning sign, Low Newton-by-the-Sea
This notice appears in the notice board on the coast at Low Newton-by-the-Sea. The text of the sign reads:
WARNING!
NATURALLY OCCURRING
ALGAL POISON

Mussels, cockles and oysters
taken from this area may be
contaminated and should
not be eaten.

Whilst the main information on the sign may still be accurate, an attempt to contact Alnwick District Council for further information would be fruitless as the district council was abolished on the 1st of April 2009, which means the sign is at least 4 years old. The District council's responsibilities were transferred to Northumberland County Council in 2009 as part of a reorganisation creating a large unitary authority.
