Roker and Seaburn beaches have both secured worldwide Blue Flag status and achieved the Seaside Award, from leading environmental charity, Keep Britain Tidy.

Joss Bay at Broadstairs, which is popular with surfers, has been stripped of the prestigious rating it enjoyed previous year, although it hangs on to its Seaside Award.

The awards act as a guarantee that South Tyneside has one of the best beaches in the world.

"Millions of tourists around the world look for a Blue Flag when choosing a beach or marina to visit, and there's a good reason for that".

Seaton Carew's main beach has once again been granted a Seaside Award from environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy - which is only given to English beaches which meet the highest standards of beach management.

The kicker for such a good looking device is the price - at 4199 yuan (AU$875) it is more expensive than the non Avengers phone. Sale of OnePlus 6 will begin in India from May 21 for customers who have subscribed to Amazon Prime and from May 22 otherwise.

The awards also acknowledge that Sandhaven has met the required European Union standards for water quality. "It's fantastic to see that Ingoldmells has also achieved Blue Flag status, meaning that nearly all the beaches in our District have been given the Award".

A quarter of children have never been swimming in the sea off the coast of Britain and almost one in five (18%) have never set foot on a British beach, according to a survey of 2,000 parents.

In total across the country, a total of 125 have received the Seaside Award, and 65 British beaches can now fly the internationally esteemed Blue Flag - with 26 announced in the south west, four in the east midlands, 12 in the east of England, six in the north east, one in the north west and one in Yorkshire.

It's fantastic to see so many of our beaches receiving these awards, which is testament to the work being done by our partners and communities across Wales to keep our beaches and waters clean.
