CAPE Town opened beaches around False Bay on yesterday morning after a man was killed by a shark at Fish Hoek outside Cape Town earlier in the week.

"After close assessment by shark spotters late yesterday afternoon, all city beaches will be opened for swimming this morning (Thursday)," a statement from the city said.

Beaches from Glencairn to Strandfontein Pavilion were closed on Tuesday after 37-year-old Lloyd Skinner from Zimbabwe was attacked by what is believed to be a great white shark.

The city appealed to the public to use beaches with lifesaving services. - Sapa
