The town hall says that Adeac's decision was because of a breach of one of the Blue Flag criteria. This has to do with industrial discharge. In all other ways the quality of the sea water continues to be "excellent".
Adeac says that the flag will be raised again once the problem is solved. Inspections are to be made to assess the situation. The town hall, not responsible for the plastic, has been thanked by Adeac for its efforts in removing the waste. The beach cleaning service has been picking up the plastic fragments at the beach.
Meanwhile, the town hall's ecology department has been collecting samples of the waste and will send a report to the department for waste at the regional ministry for the environment, agriculture and fisheries. The prosecution service will also be sent the report and decide if proceedings should be initiated. The town hall stresses that it wants to get to the bottom of the problem and is therefore working closely with Adeac, the ministry and the prosecutor in order to do just that.

This beach should never have been awarded a blue flag in the first place because it is a garbage pit. I cycle by it every morning around 7.45am and it is covered with drunks passed out and the 'employees' who clearly are paid a pittance because they have to sleep on the beach. A total disgrace!
Unfortunately ALL the Seas in the world have minute particles of plastic in them. More worrying is that these particles of plastic are in the fish that we eat.
