Update on West Beach, North Berwick - water quality now OK for swimming

We have been advised by SEPA that the latest water testing at West Beach, North Berwick has shown it is now safe once again for swimming / bathing. Warning signs are being removed and members of the public can enjoy the beach as normal.

High levels of bacteria in the sea water made it unsafe for bathing earlier this week. This was an unusual occurrence as North Berwick (West) has a good water quality classification. SEPA and Scottish Water are continuing their investigations but have confirmed the water quality is now back within safe levels.
