Furious residents lash out at Instagrammers flocking to 'Blue Lagoon' ...

Furious villagers have lashed out at Instagrammers who they say are ruining a spot by parking illegally, dumping rubbish and leaving dog mess in their quest for the perfect selfie.

The enraged residents say social media users are flocking to Margam, near Port Talbot, South Wales, to snap a selfie in front of the stunning deep blue waters of the Brombil Reservoir.

The stunning valley lake, known as the 'Blue Lagoon', is a privately-owned reservoir which has become popular among Instagrammers because of its gorgeous turquoise hues.

But residents and the local police force say it now it is being blighted by mass crowds travelling more than 200 miles for a picture.

They also say they have faced disruption from illegal parking and have found litter carelessly thrown on the ground by people visiting the spot.

One resident, Catherine Morris, 54, said: 'It's been really chaotic. It's dangerous and we are just afraid that something is going to happen.

'Last summer it all started. Somebody put pictures on Facebook and put the postcode up. Before lockdown we never had any trouble and it would only be local people going up.
