Shark maul beach open


THE beach where a 2.5m great white shark attacked a man last week has reopened.

Black Head Beach on the NSW mid-north coast was closed on Friday afternoon and remained off-limits on Saturday but was yesterday given the all clear, a Surf Life Saving Australia spokeswoma­n said.

David Quinlivan, 65, was attacked while paddling on his surf ski north of Forster, on Friday morning.

There have been 12 attacks in 13 months between Port Macquarie and Byron Bay.
