Jellyfish bloomThe UK Foreign Office has updated its travel advice for Greece, warning that jellyfish blooms have been reported and for people to heed local advice.

Officials have already issued warnings about jellyfish in Mediterranean coastal waters for France and Italy.

But local marine biologists said this year's increase was "no different" from other years and that the blooms consisted of non-stinging species.

 

 

They added that they were monitoring the situation very closely.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman told BBC News: "We have been alerted to large numbers of jellyfish in the Mediterranean this summer, especially in a number of key holiday destinations for UK tourists.

"We have updated our travel advice for a number of Mediterranean countries to reflect this issue."

She added that the Foreign Office aimed to keep its advice "as informative and useful for visitors as possible".
