Echo ad leads to AVO arrest of Council activist

Vocal Council critic and longtime activist, John Anderson, aka Fast Buck$, was arrested last Friday night for allegedly breaching his Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) by an Echo ad.

Drivers navigating Matong Drive, Ocean Shores, are warned to take care as a sinkhole has opened up in the middle of the road, not far from the intersection with Gilba Avenue.

Residents told local media yesterday that a two metre deep sinkhole had opened up in the road. One local wag even jumped into the hole to demonstrate to media how deep it was.

But the hole is of serious concern. Although only approximately 90cm by 30cm on the surface, and has the initial appearance of a pothole, it has the potential to get much larger as the asphalt around it is weakened.

Residents have created a temporary barricade around the hole using wheelie bins and rope and Byron Shire Council is investigating the problem.
