Swimming bans remain in place at three popular swimming spots in the city this morning.

It comes after an overflow at the Ringsend water treatment plant sent sewerage flowing into Dublin Bay last week.

The bans were lifted at all beaches in the Dún Laoghaire/Rathdown area last night after tests found the water quality had returned to normal.

It affected a number of popular swimming spots including Seapoint, Killiney, Sandycove and the Forty Foot.

The ban was originally expected to remain in place for seven days.

Dublin City Council has said it will decide whether to lift the bans at Dollymount, Sandymount and Merrion strands later today.
