Popular beach closed after shark sighting
LENNOX Head beach has been closed after a shark sighting.
Northern NSW Life Guard Coordinator Scott McCartney confirmed a surfer raised the alarm with surf life savers around 2pm.
"There were not many people in the water, just a handful, so we proceeded as a precautionary measure, to close the beach," he said.
Normally a drone would be sent out to monitor for marine animals, but given today's windy conditions, a jetski was deployed to check the waters.
"The sign is up and the beach is closed, but we will be deciding whether to keep the beach closed or re-opening it after 4pm," Mr McCartnmey added.
