Faeces to blame for 16 Auckland beaches too filthy for swimming

Callum McGillivray Reporter from Western Leader

Human and animal faeces are in some of Auckland's beaches.

An expert says you have a 10 per cent chance of illness if you dared take a dip in these waters. Would you risk it?

Feel free to leave a comment but add NP if you don't want it used in print.

I saw something very sad and distressing today. =(

Sharon from Te Atatu South

Saw a damaged foam mattress with chunks taken out of it, and a
crumpled duvet and a log lying beside it, not yet burned, when on my
way to WINZ today. This was on the bit of lawn under WINZ's side of
the bridge over the creek between West Wave and WINZ. I rang
VisionWest and told them about it, and that I'd been told by cops I
notified about it that there are lots of homeless people living under
the bridge, and that WINZ security guards had told me to "tell the
police, as it's nothing to do with us". Very disappointing. But Sonya
from VisionWest will get one of her colleagues to make some enquiries
to see if anybody checks up on the homeless people living under the
bridge in Henderson.

I know this isn't North Korea (link below), where the MAJORITY of
people live in slums (!) but it's still nevertheless distressing to
see a mattress and a duvet lying outside on the grass beside a bridge
- even though I've been TOLD there are homeless people in Henderson, I
STILL feel distressed when I see evidence of where they are forced to
sleep. =(
