East Londonderry MLA Maurice Bradley has called for clarification from Stormont over the opening up of beauty spots and beaches, especially across the Causeway Coast and Glens area.

Bradley claims that beach users were urinating and defecating in the sand dunes at the areas top beaches, because of the lack of toilet facilities in the area.

“I received numerous calls from irate constituents raising concerns about the number of tourists in the area, lack of social distancing and litter – some of those in touch advised that they had spotted people using the sand dunes as toilets because the facilities were not open,” he said.

“I visited Downhill, Castlerock and Portrush this morning (Monday) with Cllr George Duddy,and the areas were starting to get crowded.

“I have been in touch with the relevant Stormont departments asking for a review of access to beaches and beauty spots.

“There is a serious health and safety element here given that there are no toilet facilities open and no handwashing facilities.

“The PSNI cannot enforce lockdown rules, because of the relaxation so their hands are tied.

“As the good spell of weather continues, I would just urge people to use common sense, use our beaches and beauty spots for walks and exercise but given the fact that toilet facilities are not open, perhaps the best option is not to stay for longer than is necessary,” said Bradley.
