‘Endless land releases’ not the solution for Byron’s housing crisis, says Labor mayor hopeful

Northern Rivers-based trade unionist and MBA student Asren Pugh has announced his candidature for Byron Shire Mayor in September’s local government elections on behalf of Country Labor. 

Police are not treating as suspicious the death of a man who fell off a cliff near Byron Bay lighthouse early on Friday morning.

At 6.45am on Friday the Westpac Life Saver Helicopter located the body but was unable to retrieve him.

NSW Police Rescue crew then approached the area on foot, locating the body and preparing it for lifting to the helicopter.

Scores of beachgoers watched as the helicopter returned at about 1pm and retrieved the body.
