Potentially unsafe levels of shellfish toxins have been discovered in East Loch Roag in Lewis


Eating shellfish such as mussels, cockles, or razor fish from the sea loch may pose a risk to human health.


Notices to warn people and casual gatherers have been posted at various locations on the shore.


Commercial shellfish harvesters in these areas have been contacted by the Comhairle and steps taken to postpone harvesting until algae levels subside.


It is a sensible precaution to avoid eating shellfish from these areas until further notice.


The council is monitoring the situation and will remove warning notices when it improves.
