Scarborough Councillors have been expressing their frustration with the bathing water quality in Scarborough's South Bay.

South Bay will retain a poor water quality rating for 2024.

Councillor Roberta Swiers says more investment is needed to tackle the problems.

Councillor David Jeffels is also calling for more investment in schemes to improve the bathing water quality in the town.
