Rise in Australian shark attacks this year

Shark attacks in New South Wales in Australia have been particularly high this year.

There have been 13 attacks recorded so far, with seven injuries, and one fatality.

One theory for the rise in attacks is that changing ocean currents are driving sharks far closer to the shore.

Phil Mercer reports.
