Great White sharks are possibly endangering surfers and swimmers in Australia

FOUR huge sharks were spotted from the air cruising for bait fish along the shoreline at Main Beach, Byron Bay, late yesterday.

A spokesperson for the Surf Communications Rescue Centre at Ballina said a private helicopter flying above Byron Bay at 6pm radioed in the sighting.

It reported each of the sharks as being longer than the 3.6-metre inflatable boat being used by Byron lifesavers to drive them out to sea.

The sharks were within the zone of swimmers had anyone been in the water at the time.

The spokesperson said the best protection for swimmers at the moment was to stick to patrolled beaches.
