The rather odd way that English beaches are not 100% open to the public in the way that they are in Scotland and Wales is to be addressed.
This is really good news and despite some moaning from landowners, is long overdue.
I always find it odd, when abroad, that beaches can be fenced off or owned by hotels. Whilst it isn't quite that bad in the UK, we are an island race and I think as a nation we have more of an affinity with our coast and the sea. It ought to be our right as citizens to have access to the coast, and soon it will.
Well don to the Labour Party for doing this.
