Bakoven volunteers decided not to launch on exercise on Sunday morning as raw sewage bubbled up out of what is supposedly a disused sewage pipe. According to the duty crew this is the 4th time that this has happened in six weeks. A note was put up at the foot of the stairs and people arriving at the beach were told that swimming was a bad idea. By 10h30, the usually full beach was completely empty, after all the beach goers elected to leave rather than risk getting ill.
