Fears of a health hazard including gastro at Melbourne bays as weather warms up

With warm weather on the way, many Victorians will soon be heading for the beach – but there are fears of a new health hazard.

The heavy rain over the past two days caused the Yarra River to be filled with plastic bottles, bags, cans and masks.

The rubbish was headed downstream toward the bay.

Health experts say the items could not only affect marine wildlife, but are also concerned about the contaminants that cannot be seen.
