Bournemouth is a large coastal resort town in the ceremonial county of Dorset, England. According to the mid-year estimates for 2010 from the Office for National Statistics the town has a population of 168100, making it the largest settlement in Dorset. It is also the largest settlement between Southampton and Plymouth. With Poole and Christchurch, Bournemouth forms the South East Dorset conurbation, which has a total population of about 400000. Founded in 1810 by Lewis Tregonwell, Bournemouth's growth accelerated with the arrival of the railway, becoming a recognised town in 1870.

A number of Corks best known beaches remain closed to bathers today after dangerous levels of E.coli were found in the water.

Due to the heavy rainfall over the last two months, Cork County Council have advised that levels of E.coli at a number of Cork beaches have breached EU mandatory permitted values.

The Local Authority has banned swimming in blue flag beaches at Garretstown, Redbarn, and Garryvoe. Other impacted beaches include The Front Strand and Claycastle in Youghal, Coolmaine near Kilbrittain, and Oysterhaven.

The closures are a precautionary measure until the quality has been restored. The HSE and the Environmental Protection Agency have been contacted.

Youghal Councillor and County Mayor Barbara Murray says the system of water sampling needs to be changed.

You dont just do this on a Monday and decide you are not going to do it again until the following Monday, she said.

So I would be suggesting that it would be done on a more regular basis and that the results be brought in as soon as possible. This is the livelihoods for a lot of people. Tourism is what it is all about here in Youghal. We need to get our beach up and going as soon as possible.

Further inspections are to be carried out on the beaches tomorrow. Public notices are in place asking bathers not to swim in the effected beaches until further notice.

Bathing ban at seven Cork beaches

The state of California may have a free and easy reputation, but something as harmless as a little game of frisbee is now punishable by a fine.

In a country that prides itself on the pursuit of liberty, pitching a frisbee at a pal on the beaches of LA County could see you slapped with a $100 (63) penalty.

All balls, except volleyballs, are also forbidden on pain of the same penalty, and children digging a hole anything deeper than 18in could also land their parents in trouble.

The bans have been imposed on the same beaches where the iconic TV series Baywatch was filmed, following pressure from real-life lifeguards.

'Our beaches are very popular', LA County's Carol Baker told Sky News. 'This is simply about keeping them safe.'

Between 50 and 70 million visitors swarm the county's beaches each year.

Authorities say the new beach rules are a rationalisation of a decades-old blanket ban on flying projectiles and they will apply only to the months between May and September.

Instead, ball sports and frisbees will be permitted in designated areas.

'Lifeguards are concerned about people being trampled while sunbathing', Ms Baker added.

The new decree covers hole-digging because of safety concerns, according to officials.

'Sand is very volatile,' said Ms Baker, citing incidents where deep holes have collapsed endangering children, and caused problems for lifeguards travelling across beaches in rescue vehicles.

But the news has provoked outrage on news websites.

Some speculate the rules are designed to raise money for a cash-strapped local authority, while others fume about the imposition of gratuitous rules by overzealous government and the demise of American freedoms.

The story seems to illustrate the well-worn maxim that America is a free country – as long as you obey all the rules.
