MIDDLETOWN - Middletown beaches will not allow swimming this summer because of debris left behind by Sandy.

Authorities say potentially dangerous debris remains in the shallow water along the Raritan Bay shoreline on beaches including Ideal Beach, Leonardo Beach and Port Monmouth.

Despite signs posted along the beach telling swimmers not to enter the water, many people are still going in the water.

Beachgoers are welcome on the beaches, which have been cleared of storm debris.

Swimmers are welcome in nearby Keansburg.
