Sally Flannery discovers dark side of ‘Lovemore’

Since declaring her interest in running for Lismore Council, local woman Sally Flannery has been subjected to sustained attacks, both online and upon her property.

Two men have been injured in what NSW Ambulance is referring to as ‘an incident involving a light plane’ at Eviron, east of Murwillumbah this morning (Friday, January 6).

The ambulance service responded to an emergency call at around 8.20 this morning.

A spokesperson told Echonetdaily a man in his 70s was treated for ‘minor injuries’ and a second man in his 30s was treated for neck pain by ambulance paramedics.

Both men were transported by road ambulance to The Tweed Hospital.

Police are investigating and a duty officer was unavailable for comment at time of writing.
