Help from Red Cross for flood-affected communities in NSW

With disasters coming thick and fast as the climate emergency worsens, Australian Red Cross this morning launched financial help for flood-affected communities in NSW.

Police say they are working with caravan park managers on the Northern Rivers to stop a series of thefts from caravan parks.

Thieves are reportedly targeting caravan parks from Tweed Heads to Pottsville stealing pushbikes, computer tablets, TVs, phones and other various electronic items. 

They are also said to be using bolt cutters to cut cables and locks from bikes secured to caravans and cars.

The offenders are described as short and wearing hoodies and hats. 

Police say they will spend extra time patrolling the caravan park areas but are warning holiday-makers and residents to be more vigilant than usual when it comes to security of personal belongings when camping.

  1. We had an Esky stolen at a Ballina Caravan Park a while ago. Not worth much perhaps, but it left us with a bad taste on what was otherwise a nice break. I’m hoping I can catch one of these grubs one day and deal out some of the instant justice that the police would probably like to to but are not allowed to.
