Council says beaches remain safe for swimming despite poor weather

Tests of water quality on beaches at Exmouth and Budleigh show that they continue to meet EC standards for bathing, according to East Devon District Council. While heavy rains have led to some overflow from storm drains, this has not affected weekly tests.

The council says both beaches are now included in the South West Water Beach Live scheme. This provides the latest information on water quality.
