Beach to Stay Shut

A POLLUTED beach remains closed while investigators look into oil washed up there.

The Environment Agency is waiting for the results of lab tests after an oily substance was discovered on the sand near the high tide mark on Cambois beach, Northumberland.

Wansbeck Council says the beach will be closed until officials give the all-clear.
