Swimmers were evacuated from a moored ocean pool at a popular Sydney beach after a three meter long shark was seen from the shore.

The police were called to the south on Tuesday after 6.30 pm on the beach at Le Sands in Brighton in Sydney after shocked swimmers reported that they were lurking a shark within the netted waters.

Children were in the water at the time.

A spokeswoman for the NSW police told Daily Mail Australia that the shark was no longer spotted after bathers had been evacuated from the water.

Beachgoers have used social media to post incredible shots and images of the shark.

The latest observation comes just a few hours after a four-meter-long white shark was spotted on a remote beach in the east of the city on Tuesday morning.

Brighton Le Sands Beach remains closed until Wednesday morning can be inspected.

Bayside Council and the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries have also been notified and will be inspecting the beach on Wednesday before it is reopened.

Residents of the community Facebook page Residents Unites claimed that the shark had been there for most of the afternoon.

& # 39; We were there around 13:00 and a lady saw it. Let everyone come out of the water. Nobody believed her. We took no risks and left, & Pamela Klink posted.

Sonia Cvetanoska Ćosić added: "I think the shark was in the net since Saturday when we saw him, but he was not sure if it was a shark because he was shallow under water. & # 39;

Antonia Accoto-Basile called for lifeguards to guard the beach.

& # 39; Most people mistakenly think that just because Brighton Le Sands is calm water, it is safe. Sharks can come over and through the nets. The shark was probably prepared for its own business, but can you imagine what might have happened. & # 39;

Other worried residents called for doing something about the nets.

& # 39; The city council regularly does net checks or what? I have been swimming in the last 20 hours when it is dark, & # 39; reported a resident.

The alarming sigh comes just a few hours after a monster of great white 18 miles away on Tamarama Beach in eastern Sydney was spotted early Tuesday morning.

An image was created by Drone Shark, an app that provides drone footage for surfers and swimmers watching sharks.

The image has been posted on their Instagram and has been re-posted by Bondi Rescue lifeguard, Anthony & # 39; Harries & # 39; Carroll.

& # 39; This is my reason to tell you about @sharkbanz this is what I use to reduce the risk of encounter or attack. It is my state of mind, "he wrote.

Drone Shark, a new startup funded by surfers, sends warnings for observing sharks around the Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte beaches.

The creator of the app, Jason Iggleden, told Fairfax that he and two others were on the road to watch the sunrise and make recordings when they came across the predator.

& # 39; It was a very calm morning at the water without fish, & # 39; he said.

When observing the shark, Mr. Iggleden used a megaphone to warn beachgoers to come out of the water.

We shouted at once, and then called the Bronte Beach rescuers to get swimmers out of the water, & # 39; he said.

We also called Bondi's rescue squads who brought out the jetski's to scare it away before we lost sight of it in deeper water. & # 39;
