Friends of the Earth said today that Blackpool and Brighton are believed to be among 55 beaches which will remain polluted with sewage despite government promises to reach its clean-up target for next April, reports the Evening Standard (p21).

Morecambe and Great Yarmouth would also fail to meet mandatory standards, FoE said.

The paper reported that the National Rivers Authority had been forced to revise its April forecast which the government had set for when 95% of British bathing beaches would comply with EU directives.
