Three beaches in North Tyneside are among the best in Europe.

Tynemouth Longsands, King Edward's Bay and Whitley Bay south have all been given the prestigious Blue Flag Award.

It's the 20th year in a row they've been recognised for clean water, being litter free and 'top-notch' facilities.

Keep Britain Tidy says England can now boast more clean beaches than Cyprus or Mexico, and is ranked inside the global top 10.
