The government has published the latest set of bathing water quality compliance reports for England. The press release shows that 96% of English bathing waters meet required quality standards, a fall from 97% last year, while those rated ‘good’ or ‘excellent’ dipped from 93% to 90%. In Scotland, SEPA said 98% had again attained ‘sufficient,’ with 84% good or excellent.

Covered by the BBC and in The Guardian, which highlights that all 3 inland designated bathing waters are classified as poor, meaning they are unfit for swimming. The same is true for the proposed bathing water site in Wallingford.
