Contamination fears over popular beach

The beach at Prestwick in Ayrshire has been put off-limits to the public over concerns about asbestos contamination.

Officials are attempting to trace the source of the material.

South Ayrshire Council said the beach would remain closed until a specialist contractor could remove the material and carry out decontamination works.

John McManus reports.
