The bathing waters at Lee-on-the-Solent and Stokes Bay, in Gosport, have been classified as excellent for next year’s season, the government’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs announced.
Gosport Borough Council tourism officer John Gibbs said: ‘This is great news for these two wonderful beaches, which attract so many residents and visitors.
‘It’s good to know that the water has the official seal of approval for another year.’
The water at both sites is tested by the Environment Agency.
