Dogs are set to be banned from some Teignbridge beaches this Friday 1 April until 30 September.

The annual ban forms part of a 'Public Space Protection Order', which also includes keeping your dog on a fixed 1m lead when on or adjacent to the public highway or on a footpath or cycle path.

If you ignore the order, you can face a fine of £100 on the spot or up to £1,000 in court.
