A win for the roughy

The battle for the 'roughy had been a tough road for conservationists and hopefully this win will be the last fight.

Police divers are up from Sydney today to help try and solve the mystery surrounding the death of a man at Terania Creek near Protestors Falls.

The 45-year-old Nimbin man was discovered dead on Monday after emergency services were alerted to a car left running on a causeway about 200m inside the Nightcap National Park.

Police retrieved the man’s body around 4pm after it was spotted by crew members of the Westpac Rescue Life Saver Helicopter.

Police and SES searched the area yesterday for clues, and the police divers will continue the search today.

While in the area, the police divers have also been tasked to retrieve a mobility scooter from the Evans River.

Police rescue members retrieved the body of a 92-year-old Evans Head resident who fell from the wharf on the scooter while fishing on Saturday.
