Kim Kardashian's sisters Khloe and Kourtney have upset residents in The Hamptons, New York by allegedly filming on a public beach without notifying local authorities.

The reality Tv stars were reportedly shooting footage for their new series Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons on Indian Wells Beach near East Hampton last week (ends22Jun14).

However, local residents are questioning whether the film crew secured the proper permits for the shoot.

A town board meeting has been held to discuss the issue and members urged residents to contact police if they spot any potentially unauthorised filming.

East Hampton Town trustee Diane MCNally tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "Who gave the Kardashians permission to film? The trustees should have been notified if they had applied for a permit to film on the beach, and we were not notified. Filming on our beaches is disruptive. Our residents are entitled to peace and quiet. I suggest that if anyone sees the Kardashians filming on the beach, they should call the police, because they are not legally there."
