Browns Bay: fears that packets found on beach contain rat poison


Police have warned that packages, possibly containing rat poison, may have been found at Browns Bay beach.

The PSNI Larne Facebook page today carries a post stating: “We have received a report from a member of the public who recently found two small packets of what they suspected to be rat poison on Browns Bay beach.

“It isn’t confirmed if the packages contained a poison or harmful substance. We have only received one report regarding this, so the matter could potentially be a one-off.”

The police warned the public, however, “Please be wary of any substances found, especially if walking your dogs.”
