Brighton Beach, South Australia: Shark sighted off jetty

People at a South Australian beach have been warned about a massive shark which was sited just metres from a popular swimming spot.

Authorities warned that a three-metre shark was spotted at Brighton Beach at around 3:30pm on Friday.

The creature was seen just 10 metres away from the jetty, according to SA Police.

“Swimmers are advised to leave the water,” police said.

The sighting was made after aerial shark patrols began on South Australian beaches for the summer season.

Patrols run by Hartwig Air operate daily between 10am and 7:30pm from North Haven to Rapid Bay.

If a shark which could pose a safety risk is sited, sirens will sound and the aircraft will circle around the area it was sited.
