Caution advised at Buffalo Beach Whitianga

A launch has broken free from its mooring and has ended up on Buffalo Beach, Whitianga, near the Buffalo memorial area and rock wall.

At this stage a salvage company, Waikato Regional Council’s harbourmaster, police and TCDC staff are helping with attempts to salvage the boat

TCDC is expecting debris to wash up and get scattered around the rocks and the beach all the way to the wharf, which is why they’re asking people stay off the beach and also not to climb on the rock wall to pick up litter.

A skip is being delivered to the Buffalo beach toilets and staff will be conducting a beach clean-up. 
Any public wanting to help clean the sandy part of the beach can put collected debris into the provided skip bins/ bags.
