'Large' reptile reported in surf at popular swimming spot

Earlier, Trinity Beach was closed to swimmers yesterday afternoon after reports of a 'large' crocodile in the surf at the southern end of the popular beach.

The beach stayed closed overnight with a surf life saving Queensland spokesman saying lifeguards would conduct a routine inspection the beach tomorrow before deciding whether it will be re-opened.
