Beaches closed today due to rubbish after wild weather

SIMPLY because it's stopped raining and the temperature is rising doesn't mean time taking a dip at the beach is an option today.

The beaches of the Coffs Coast have been closed today. It's not because of dangerous surf conditions though.

Debris in the water is the major concern behind the move.

While having a swim at the beach is a no-no, people can still go for a walk but even then they need to be careful.

The pounding ocean over the Australia Day long weekend has caused erosion at many beaches.

Several access points are dangerous with sand cliffs replacing easy walks down to the beach.

Walkers must take care to find a safe entry point to the beach.

It's hoped, but not guaranteed, the beaches will be open for swimming on Thursday.
