P J Prideaux, Byron Bay
Rich kids from a Melbourne private school bought a car in Byron Bay last Tuesday morning, then spent the day hooning around the town, including car-surfing down the back lanes before finally trashing the vehicle, removing the plates and dumping it in the late afternoon outside our fence.
Fortunately local residents were instrumental in assisting the police in apprehending the trio at the end of our laneway. No charges have been laid as the police said they couldn’t prove who was driving the car. Say what? This is Byron Bay 2014.
