A beach in Poole has had sewage dumped into the sea over the first weekend in October.

Shore Road beach in Poole had sewage discharged into the water on Sunday, October 2 which was confirmed on the website of Wessex Water.

The group Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) also showed this on their website, with the blue-flag beach being the only one along that section of Dorset coastline having sewage dumped near it.

"Located on a long sandy spit jutting out into Poole Harbour, Shore Road Beach is a popular 1km stretch of sand backed by a promenade.

"Views across Poole Harbour to Brownsea Island and out to sea make it an ideal location for watching the sunset. A sewer overflow discharges through a sea outfall pipe directly in front of the beach."

Back in August, a number of beaches in the Dorset area were shown to have sewage dumped in them, including Bournemouth Boscombe Pier, Lulworth Cove, Seatown Stream and Eypemouth.

A spokesperson for the SAS said back then that those visiting the coast are advised to check its interactive map on their website before they swim.
