The man was recovered from the water this morning and treated by local police before St John Ambulance officers arrived.

The man was also bitten on his upper thigh.

At about 8:45am, police were told of a serious shark attack at the popular tourist beach.

Police could not provide more details and said further information would be provided as it became available.

Authorities believe Sharpe was taken by a shark after widespread reports of a sighting at the Kelp Beds at Wylie Beach in Esperance.
