'Excellent' rating for borough beaches

The borough's two bathing beaches have kept their top ratings for water quality.

Lee-on-the-Solent and Stokes Bay beaches will have the classification 'excellent' for next year's season, the government's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs announced.

Gosport Borough Council tourism officer John Gibbs said: "This is great news for these two wonderful beaches, which attract so many residents and visitors. It's good to know that the water has the official seal of approval for another year."

The water at both sites is tested by the Environment Agency.
