Greater Sydney goes into COVID related lockdown

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has just announced that greater Sydney area will go into lockdown until next Monday.

Fire has damaged Woolworths’ River St, Ballina store this morning.

Thick black smoke was seen pouring from the roof of the building at about 5am.

The fire brigade attended the scene and has extinguished the fire. Nobody was injured in the blaze.

At this stage the cause of the fire is unknown although police say there is less damage to the store itself than first thought.

The shop is now being aired out after the fire.
