Sharks sighted off Perth beach

Sat Feb 26, 2011 3:29pm AEDT

A school of up to 100 sharks have been spotted in Warnbro Sound, south of Perth.

The crew of a Surf Lifesaving helicopter first saw the sharks just before 8.00am this morning.

Authorities say they are mostly juvenile hammerhead and whaler sharks, the biggest being about one and a half metres long.

The Surf Livesaving says they are not known to be a particularly aggressive species.

A stretch of beach, between Donald Street boat ramp and Shelton Street, has been closed.
