An oil spill led to the closure of Hung Shing Yeh Beach on Lamma Island yesterday and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department said the beach would be closed until further notice. Elsewhere, red flags advising people to stay out of the water were raised at Upper Cheung Sha Beach, Lower Cheung Sha Beach, Pui O Beach and Tong Fuk Beach on Lantau due to big waves.
