WATCH: Huge swells batter Durban beachfront


A general view shows thousands of New Year's day revellers and holidaymakers gathering on North Pier Beach during New Year festivities in Durban.


DURBAN - Durban's North Beach has been closed after large swells battered the beachfront on Sunday. The 10-feet high waves reached as far as the promenade walkway.

A cyclone coming from the direction of Madagascar is believed to have caused the heightened wave activity.

Wet weather conditions are expected to continue through Monday. 



Emergency services urged the public to be careful when in the vicinity of the beachfront, as swells of up to 10 feet have breached beach barriers.
