Bringing down the heat in our ‘hood

How well we survive the future depends on our vision for our towns and suburbs – and on how we bring that vision about.

A man will appear in Lismore Local Court this morning after a three-hour police chase at Casino on Friday.

The 19-year-old man is accused of evading police after he allegedly breached bail in February.

Trains had to be stopped during the chase as police searched the rail corridor.

Schools were warned to keep students indoors until they could be accompanied home.

The man was arrested at around 6.30pm.
