The City of Cape Town's Health Department has warned Clifton residents of a sewage spill at Clifton 1st Beach.

The spill has emanated from a sewer blockage at a nearby property.

The City's teams are hoping to repair the blockage as soon as they're able to gain access to the property.

Members of the public are cautioned to avoid contact with the water until further notice.

Any form of full-contact recreational activity such as swimming, diving, water skiing, surfing, paddle skiing and wind surfing may increase the risk of gastrointestinal problems, as well as skin, eye, ear and respiratory irritations.

The City will erect signage to warn the public about the situation and will inform the public once the spill has been resolved and this area of the beach is safe again.
