Shark Sighting Closes Redhead Beach

Redhead Beach is closed following a shark sighting.

A drone contractor from the Department of Primary Industries was filming the break when he spotted a three metre Great White lurking in the water near a group of surfers at around 8:30am.

The siren was sounded and the water was evacuated.

Lifeguards are patrolling the area on jet-skis and will reopen the beach later this morning if there's no new sightings by 9.30am.
