Shark sighting forces the evacuation of Mooloolaba Beach

SWIMMERS evacuated the water at Mooloolaba Beach at about 6.30am today, after a large shark was spotted close to shore.

About 50 beachgoers fled the water, after it was believed a large shark had swam underneath two stand-up paddle boarders.

The water was cleared for about half an hour as life savers scoured the water for the shark, before the beach was reopened.

Did you see the shark this morning?
