British beaches fail cleanliness test26th May 2011
Nearly 50 British beaches failed to meet basic cleanliness standards, according to new figures.
Across the UK, 461 beaches were given the top “recommended” award for having excellent bathing water quality according to the Good Beach Guide, the Marine Conservation Society said. It is the third highest number in the guide’s 24-year history, and a significant increase on last year with 42 more bathing spots reached the top grade in 2011 than in 2010. But 46 failed to meet even the basic standards of water quality set in European law 35 years ago.
