The 23 beaches and rivers that are too polluted to use, as bathing season begins

I’d love it if I had a beach near me, I can’t lie but obviously not one that’s unsafe to swim. Yeah I’ve seen how beaches have deteriorated over the years, and how dirty the water have become.

At least 23 advisories are in place warning against bathing at beaches and rivers across England as the swimming season begins.

The Environment Agency begins testing water quality in May and publishes the results via the Swimfo website to help people decide where and when to swim.

With more warm weather forecast for much of the country this weekend, hundreds of designated bathing spots are deemed clean enough to enjoy.
