It said the investigation was ongoing and a decision on whether the resident would be prosecuted would be taken in due course.
‘An officer has visited the area and there is ongoing communication with the person responsible,’ said an Environmental Health and Pollution Regulation spokesman.
‘There is no current indication that this incident has had any long-term detrimental impact on the surrounding environment, including the local beaches.’
