ORLEANS, MASS. (WHDH) - A great white shark was spotted swimming close to the shore off Nauset Beach in Orleans on Friday afternoon.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy says the shark was seen about 100 yards from the shoreline.

Swimmers at the beach were ordered to stay out of the water for an hour.

On Thursday, a “seal, a fin and an eruption of blood” in the water prompted the closure of Head of the Meadow in Truro.
