Thousands of dog owners took part in a march along the West Strand in Portrush on Sunday to protest against proposals from the local authority that would see their pooches banned from the beach.

Coleraine Borough Council is currently considering the possibility of prohibiting dogs from council-owned beaches all year round in order to stem the rising tide of dog fouling.
