Scotland beach signs become defective

Safety signage on a beach in Scotland now requires repair after only being in place for a number of weeks.

The screens offer updates on water quality at Stewarty beaches and cost £110,000, though they have been losing power sporadically. They are fitted at Southerness, Dhoon Bay, Sandyhills, Rockcliffe and Brighouse Bay in June, reports the Galloway News.

Calum McPhail, an expert at the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA), which runs the signs, told the news provider: "We are currently experiencing intermittent technical issues with some of our new electronic message signs as we commission new operating systems."

Mr McPhail assured that SEPA is doing all it can to resolve the issue and has advised people to check on its website to receive the latest water safety information.

News of the defective signs follows a BBC report, which saw a parent call for new signs to be introduced on a Berkshire footpath after her daughter suffered injuries when she was trampled by a herd of cows. ADNFCR-2754-ID-800693724-ADNFCR
