Shark shuts local beach

LIFESAVERS at Bundaberg Surf Lifesaving Club closed Nielson Park Beach Saturday afternoon after a shark was spotted.

The beach was reopened later after a thorough search of the area.

Lifesavers on patrol said if swimmers had any concerns about shadows they saw in the water to speak to the personnel on patrol and swim between the flags.
