Coastguard Officers were called this morning to a strong diesel smell at the North end of the bay.
On investigation, the source appeared to be from the stream at Sheps Hollow where the smell was the strongest.
The relevant authorities were advised and following enquiries the Environment Agency have located a leaking fuel tank.
As a precaution, we would advise dog walkers not to let their dogs drink from the stream at Sheps Hollow.
We would also advise to stay out of the sea and follow advice on warning signs.
The stream at Sheps Hollow is between groynes 17 and 18.
