Temporary closure of beach
Gates Bay in St George’s was temporarily closed for safety reasons after fireproofing materials blew down from the nearby hotel construction site.
Renee Ming, MP for St George’s North, told The Royal Gazette that “wind gusts on made the immediate closing of the beach necessary” on Thursday.
Residents expressed concern after a sign went up outside the beach warning: “Do not enter water.”
Ms Ming wrote in a Facebook post: “I realise that the sight of the sign caused some angst and I appreciate the 911 alerts that I received.
“Your safety outweighs your leisure so the move by the Government and the hotel developers was a welcomed necessary action.”
