North East coastal waters being monitored for bathing quality​

The organisation has said it will issue warnings of any forecasted pollution risk on its website, Swimfo, with signs also put up at swimming locations to inform bathers about any changes in quality as a result of things like rainfall, wind and high tides.  Bathing water along along the North East coast is being tested regularly from today. The Environment Agency has said it will monitor quality at 34 sites across the region, going as far north as Spittal, near Berwick, and as far south as Saltburn.

Of these sites, 33 are classified by the organisation as 'good' or 'excellent'. One, Cullercoats, is rated 'poor'. The agency has said it is investigating this with Northumbrian Water.
