High, but not high enough, on the country's human rights agenda is the issue of Aboriginal deaths in custody.

Police are investigating a two-car crash that seriously injured two people in the state’s far-north yesterday.

About 5.30pm (Wednesday 24 July 2019), emergency services attended Kyogle Road near the intersection of Mount Warning Road in Dum Dum, north of Nimbin near Uki, after reports two cars had crashed head-on.

Traffic was blocked in both directions and diversions were in place onto Smiths Creek Road.
