Officials tell Pirate FM they can not rule out more Cornish beaches failing clean water checks.

The Environment Agency says ones at Looe, Fowey, Par, Mevagissey, Rock and Bude are at risk.

It is holding a series of meeting with locals, two years before tough new standards are brought in.

Spokesman Jonathan Ponting said we can all play our part: "We all recognise just how important our fabulous beaches are to the tourism industry, and the money that that brings in to the local economy. And that's why the Environment Agency is so determined to work with everybody that we need to work with, to all pull together and get the improvements.

"For beaches to get the Blue Flags come 2015, they will need to meet these tough new standards, and that's why we all need to work together to get the quality improved, so that as many beaches pass the standards and those that want to go for Blue Flag have got the best chance that they can."
