■ CASURARINA Beach was closed on Thurs­day af­ter af­ter a shark was spot­ted by the De­part­ment of Pri­mary In­dus­tries. But au­thor­i­ties were forced to can­cel he­li­copter pa­trols due to bad weather con­di­tions.

Ac­cord­ing to the DPI’S Shark Smart Twit­ter ac­count, Surf Life Sav­ing NSW life­guards sighted a shark at Ca­sua­r­ina and closed the beach about 9am. It came af­ter the DPI said it was sus­pend­ing he­li­copter sur­veil­lance of all beaches be­tween Bal­lina and Tweed Heads due to “tur­bid wa­ter and storm cells.” The sight­ing was just one of sev­eral across the North Coast in the past week, with sharks spot­ted at Bal­lina and By­ron Bay.
