Beach safety signs stolen in north Antrim

A number of warning signs have been stolen from beaches in north Antrim, putting the safety of locals in danger.

The thefts occurred at beaches including Waterfoot, Ballycastle and Runkerry, with replacements for seven of the installations expected to cost Moyle Council £500, reports the Ballymoney and Moyle Times.

Speaking to the news provider, the council’s head of technical services Aidan McPeake said: "We can’t say for sure but because the signs are metal we would be led to believe it [is] down to scrap metal thieves."

Mr McPeake explained that the authority is taking steps to replace them as quickly as possible and has urged the public to report any suspicious activity to police.

It will be hoped that similar thefts do not occur at Skegness Railway Station, after the BBC reported that new signs have been installed at the site in a bid to stop people from playing on sculptures.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801342572-ADNFCR
