Polish authorities last week banned swimming at over 50 beaches, saying that toxic cyanobacteria colonies had grown in the unusually warm sea and posed a health threat.

Lithuanian public health specialists say that currently there are no conditions for the growth of these bacteria along the country's Baltic Sea coast.

Municipal officials in Klaip4da, Palanga and Neringa told BNS that no increase in algae growth had been recorded on the beaches.
