Red flags lowered at several beaches

Attention TV/radio announcers:

Please broadcast the following as soon as possible and repeat it at regular intervals:

Here is an item of interest to swimmers.

     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department announced today (June 10) that since the water off Deep Water Bay Beach, Middle Bay Beach, South Bay Beach, Chung Hom Kok Beach and St Stephen's Beach in Southern District are now suitable for swimming, the red flags have been lowered.

     The red flags were hoisted at these beaches earlier after red tide was found.

     Moreover, the red tide off Shek O Beach in the same district has subsided and the water quality of the beach is suitable for swimming. However, due to big waves, the red flag has been hoisted at the beach. Beach-goers are advised not to swim at the beach.
