An alert has been posted on Auckland Council’s Safeswim website this afternoon, advising against swimming at Muriwai Beach.

Sharks have been sighted at a number of beaches around Auckland over the last few weeks, on both the west and east coasts.

A 19-year-old woman died in a suspected shark attack at Waihi Beach early last month.

The last fatal shark attack in New Zealand waters before that was in 2013, at Muriwai Beach.
