The River Teme in Ludlow along with the River Severn in Ironbridge and in Frankwell, Shrewsbury, are among 27 spots that the Government have recognised as bathing water sites.

The announcement is the largest number of sites to be designated in one year and brings the total to 451 across England.

The Environment Agency will immediately start monitoring the water quality throughout the bathing season, which runs from May 15 to September 30.
