Top Water Quality Award For Dorset's Beaches
8:45am 3rd May 2012
Beaches at Weymouth and Portland have made it into the Good Beach Guide.
Samples were also taken at West Bay and Hive last summer- they're also now Recommended Beaches.
The Marine Conservation Society hopes the latest figures will be a boost to tourism along the south coast.
Next year, the tests get more stringent as the new revised Bathing Water Directive comes into force.
The MCS is just starting to take samples again but the heavy rain could have had an impact already.
We're being advised to stay out of the water for a couple of days following any torrential downpours.
