The Public Health Agency (PHA) has issued a reminder to people to "take care in the sun".

"The sun can cause permanent damage to our skin if we don't take precautions. Just one episode of sunburn, especially in childhood, doubles the lifetime risk of malignant melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer."
