Lifeguards to patrol beaches in WINTER for the first time ever!
• It's the first time in history lifeguards have been forced to work into winter
• Warmest May on record in Sydney, while Australia's eastern cities are experiencing above-average temperatures
Lifeguards will monitor Sydney's northern beaches in winter for the first time ever with warm weather forcing them to extend their patrol season to June.
The record warm weather in Sydney has seen people continue to flock to the beaches in above average numbers throughout Autumn, soaking up what they thought would be the last of the summer sunshine.
Clinton Rose from the Warringah Council told The Daily Telegraph that in an unprecedented event lifeguards will patrol Dee Why beach on the first weekend of winter.
'Our duty to protect the public is our first and only priority and the warm weather means more people are visiting our most popular beaches for longer,' he said.
'For the first time, we'll patrol our most popular beach Dee Why, in the first weekend of June. We're also planning to patrol Dee Why on weekends and public holidays in June pending weather conditions.'
