Nearly 50 beaches in Britain fail cleanliness test
"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 (MCS) said.
"It's the third highest number in the guide's 24-year history, and a significant increase on last year.
"Some 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, the MCS said, a slight increase on last year's figure of 41."
