Waste water from beaches will turn England into the dirtiest country in Europe

Waste water from beaches will turn England into the dirtiest country in Europe

Many beaches in Europe cannot receive tourists due to sewage pollution. The UK has literally become a waste island in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic.

During the tourist season in England, 654 wastewater discharges were registered. The first place in the number of such incidents is occupied by one of the most popular beaches in Britain – Longrock.

Experts do not rule out that the discharge of sewage could turn the United Kingdom into the “dirty of Europe“. According to tourism expert Malcolm Bell, this trend is hurting the country as tourist loyalty is deteriorating.

“Recently, we have been seeing pollution on a large scale – this has not happened before. Previously, we did not know how often untreated sewage ended up in the sea,” said Rachel Wyatt from the Marine Conservation Society.
