Beach ‘shouldn’t have been’ closed


Share post:

WORTHING BEACH MIGHT be reopened, but Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy was never in agreement with it being closed in the first place.

One week after the popular South Coast beach was closed by the Ministry of Health due to concerns about sewage leakage, authorities yesterday gave the go-ahead for sea bathers to venture into the waters once again.

However, despite a report that a tourist was allegedly hospitalised after swimming at Worthing Beach, Sealy has insisted that the sea never posed any danger.

In fact, the minister boldly declared that some “bad decisions” had been made in relation to the recent leakage of sewage along the island’s South Coast. (RB)
