On 29 January 2018, this story appeared on the BBC:

Shellfish poisoning of dogs on coast confirmed

Earlier this month two dogs died after eating washed-up fish along the Norfolk and Suffolk coast.

Eastern Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (EIFCA) said it was "highly likely" both dogs died from paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP).

On 25 October 2021, the BBC ran this story:

Dead crabs and fish washed up on Teesside beaches

An investigation is under way after dead crabs, lobsters and fish were washed up along part of the North East coast.

Such wash-ups have been reported at Bran Sands at Redcar, Seaton Carew and Saltburn in the past few weeks.

A dead porpoise was also photographed at South Gare, near the mouth of the River Tees, at the weekend.

An expert said it was "very concerning" and "quite odd" it appeared to be localised around the Tees.

12 Jan 2022:

No 'direct link' between Yorkshire beaches and mystery dog illness

Cases of severe vomiting and diarrhoea have been reported by veterinary businesses in and around Bridlington.

Dog owners have said their pets became ill following beach visits, with the cause of the illness still unknown.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council's coastal services team found "nothing unusual" during recent inspections.

On 20 Jan 2022 appeared this story:

Mystery dog illness sees north of England 'spike'

A mystery illness in dogs which was previously linked to beach walks has been spreading among canines inland.

Some owners have said their dogs have vomited and suffered diarrhoea due to an unknown sickness after walks.

The British Veterinary Association said reports of the bug had "spiked" in Yorkshire and the North East, with cases "more widespread than usual".

21 January 2022:

North East fishing trade hit by mystery shellfish deaths

Fishermen in Whitby are calling for financial support from the government to "save" the North East fleet amid a mystery over mass shellfish deaths.

Crabs and lobsters are dying by the thousands due to an unknown cause.

Fisherman have alleged it may be linked to the dredging of the River Tees and want an investigation and compensation.

The Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) said it was "engaging with fishermen" but inquiries had ruled out dredging as a cause.

And 27 June 2022:

Hartlepool fishermen fear for future after crab deaths

Fishermen fear for their future after the deaths of thousands of crabs and lobsters off the North East's coast.

Mass wash-ups were first reported in October with the government saying a natural algal bloom was to blame.

Campaigners and fishermen disputed that and instead cited the dumping of dredged materials from the River Tees, which was "ruled out" by officials.
