55 English beaches have met tough new EU standards to receive Blue Flag awards, recognising their high standards and water quality. A report released by the European Environment Agency revealed that Thanet in Kent won eight awards, while the Isle of Wight, Bournemouth and Poole in Dorset, and Torbay in Devon each received four awards. The 55-beach total is down from 79 in 2012, but this year beaches were subject to much tougher standards. Six per cent of English beaches and other swimming spots failed to meet the minimum EU standards. The Isle of Wight won the most awards nationwide, with a total of four Blue Flags and 13 Seaside Awards.
