Cr Keith Williams calls for consultation on South Ballina Beach access

At today's Ballina Council meeting, Cr Keith Williams is going to urge council to write to the NSW Minister for Crown Lands about South Ballina beach, which has recently been closed to public 4WD access.

A man is in a serious condition in Lismore Base Hospital and another man has been charged following a stabbing in Ballina early Wednesday evening.

Around 6.40pm, a 19-year-old man went to visit a friend at a house in Tamar Street.

The door was answered by a 32-year-old man who allegedly refused to let him enter.

Police have been told a fight then followed, during which the 32-year-old allegedly stabbed the teenager several times with a pair of scissors.

The teenager then left the scene and took himself to Ballina Hospital.

Police were called to the scene and arrested the man, who was charged with reckless wounding and refused bail, to appear at Lismore Local Court today.

The teenager was transported to Lismore Base Hospital and remains in serious condition.

Police are urging anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www.police.nsw.gov.au/.
