At FMQs, Humza Yousaf was questioned about widespread contamination at many of Scotland’s outdoor swimming sites by Liz Smith.
The First Minister said: I take some exception to the use of the term “widespread”. The Scottish Government is committed to improving water quality in bathing waters across Scotland.
Ms Smith replied: ‘I am a bit surprised by that answer. The most recent investigations at Lower Largo in Fife tell us that it is the most polluted beach in Scotland. It has breached the regulations on seven occasions so far in 2023 and, on three occasions, it was at 50 times the contamination limit.’
