More bullying stories emerge in Lismore

Since local woman Sally Flannery decided to quit the Lismore City Council race, more stories of harassment and attacks have emerged, affecting councillors and others across the political spectrum.

Traffic has now cleared on northbound lanes of the Pacific Highway following a car and caravan rollover at Cudgera Creek around midday.

Summerland Way is now also clear between Fairy Hill and Kyogle, after the council and emergency services cleaned up a 10km oil spill.

Original report: A car and caravan have rolled on the Pacific Highway at Cudgera Creek.

Emergency services were still on their way to the scene at midday – it’s not yet known whether there are any injuries.

The Transport Management Centre said that northbound traffic is heavy approaching the site and that ‘some lanes may be affected.
