Moray Council is warning people that the East Sands footbridge in Lossiemouth remains closed.
The reinforcement of guidelines comes after reports of people jumping the barriers over the weekend.
The footbridge has been closed since July last year because of safety concerns.
The council has reinforced its message insisting “emergency services in Moray have enough to deal with at the moment.”
With nicer weather tempting people to beaches for their daily exercise, leader of Moray Council, Councillor Graham Leadbitter reminded would-be visitors that the East Sands are still not to be accessed from the town.
He said: “The footbridge across to the East beach is dangerous to use and crossing the water below shouldn’t be attempted either.
“We don’t want accidents on the bridge or risk becoming stranded by crossing the water.
“The emergency services in Moray have enough to deal with at the moment; people shouldn’t put even more pressure on them, particularly the NHS, by taking risks that could result in injury or worse.”
