Four more beaches along the Yorkshire Coast have improved their classification to ‘Excellent’ quality, according to a new report from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Scarborough North, Robin Hoods Bay, Reighton and Hornsea are all now achieving ‘Excellent’ quality compared to their ‘Good’ rating last year, while Whitby, Cayton Bay and Danes Dyke also remain ‘Excellent’. Sixteen of the county’s bathing waters are either ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.

Yorkshire Water Coastal Delivery & Engagement Manager, Geraldine Tebb, said:

“The results are the product of years of hard work from a variety of partners and customers across the county.

The water quality results and facilities available at Scarborough North Bay, Hornsea, and Whitby are of such great quality that Blue Flag status can be applied for.

Everyone has a part to play in protecting and improving our great bathing waters. If we continue to work together to reduce pollution, we can improve water quality and ensure our bathing waters and coastal communities continue to thrive. We’d encourage people to get out and enjoy our beautiful coastline.”

The results mean that Scarborough North Bay, Robin Hood's Bay and Reighton can apply for a Blue Flag status.

The classification upgrade is according to a new report from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Geraldine Tebb - says Scarborough's South Bay is still poor though.
