In total, 65 beaches around the country can now proudly fly a Blue Flag - an global award which means visitors can be sure they are clean and safe.

The other beaches to win awards are: Tankerton in Canterbury, Marina St Leonards in Hastings, and Sheerness Beach, Minster Leas and Leysdown Beach in Swale, Kent.

Keep Wales Tidy has unveiled the 91 sites across the country that have met the high standards needed to receive the prestigious Blue Flag, Green Coast Award and Seaside Award - a total of 149 awards for Wales.

Two city beaches will be able to fly the Blue Flag this summer.

East of England: Cromer, Sea Palling, Sheringham, Mundesley, East Runton, West Runton, East Beach Shoeburyness, Shoebury Common, Thorpe Bay, Dovercourt Bay, Brightlingsea, Southwold Pier.

Thirty-three per cent have never been on holiday to the coast, and nearly 18 per cent have never even set foot on a British beach.

Allison Ogden-Newton, Keep Britain Tidy's chief executive, said: "The success of the beaches in reaching the very high standards demanded is testament to all those who have worked so hard to protect and improve our beaches - from beach managers and volunteers to local people and businesses".

The announcement means the South West retains its title as Britain's beach capital, having won more awards than anywhere else in the country.

"Blue Flag and Seaside Awards set the standard for our beaches, including the war against the litter and plastic that does so much damage to our marine environment".

Coun Moira Smith, the South Tyneside Council's lead member for area management and community safety, said: "We are thrilled that Sandhaven Beach has received the Blue Flag and Seaside Awards once again".

The sands at Hunstanton and Wells are among 18 beaches in East Anglia to have been given Seaside Awards, although they were not among this year's list of Blue Flag winners.
