Five beaches in the South Hams have been given no swim advice by Surfers Against Sewage.
Five beaches in the South Hams have been flagged by the charity Surfers Against Sewage on their Safer Seas Service, an interactive map which monitors water quality on UK beaches. Find it here.
Salcombe South Sands and Mothecombe have both been given “pollution alerts” after storm sewage was discharged, while the others have been given “pollution risk warnings”.
Salcombe South Sands
Pollution Alert: Storm sewage has been discharged from a sewer overflow in this location within the past 48 hours.
Salcombe North Sands
Pollution Risk Warning: Bathing not advised today due to the likelihood of reduced water quality.
Surfers Against Sewage started in a small town in Cornwall and is now a grassroots movement that has grown into "one of the UK’s most active and successful environmental charities".
