Government secrecy around health advice defended by local Nats MP

Tweed-Byron police have advised parents to be aware of the potential for teenage parties to escalate when publicised on social media platforms like Facebook.

The call follows the police being called out to two parties in the Tweed on the weekend which had apparently got out of control.

About 11.40pm on Friday, March 11, police attended a property at Upper Burringbar Rd, Burringbar, after a large party there had got out of control.

Police said more than 100 young people were there, many of them drunk, and that they had received complaints about noise and fighting. Police spent more than an hour on scene moving the crowd on.

The adult organiser of the party stated that numbers had got out of control because someone had put the party on Facebook.

About 8.40pm on Saturday, March 12, police knocked on the door of a property at Terrace St, Chinderah, after a party had got out of control there.

A teenage boy had organised a party while his parents were away and more than 100 young people attended. Drunk teens were reported to be smashing bottles and throwing projectiles at police.

Police were on scene for several hours, moving people on and disbursing the crowd. A number of the partygoers were detained due to their degree of drunkenness, and their parents contacted.
