New film celebrates getting back outside

'Free From Lockdown: Back Out in Nature' is a new short film in which a group of disabled and non-disabled performers from the Northern Rivers celebrate being in nature after COVID lockdown.

Clothing, manchester, baby clothes, perfume, toiletries, fishing tackle, and DVDs, all with price tags attached, were uncovered by police during raids in Ballina yesterday.

Police arrested a man and a woman after raiding a house in Apsley Street, West Ballina, shortly after 8.30am and a storage unit in Kalinga Street, Ballina, a short time later.

The Kalinga Street raid also turned up a large quantity of camping equipment including tents, mobile hot water systems, and petrol-powered generators.

A small hydroponic unit was also found at the house.

The 29-year-old man and 45-year-old woman, both from Ballina, were arrested and taken to Ballina Police Station, where they were charged with larceny, having goods in custody suspected of being stolen.

The man was also charged with drug offences.

The pair were refused bail and will appear in Ballina Local Court today.
