No means no, say traditional owners

As Water Week draws to a close, with a theme of 'Caring for Water and Country', a group of Widjabul Wia-bal elders have emphatically said they do not want the Dunoon Dam proposal to be put back on the table by pro-dam councillors.

NSW Police say an investigation is underway following an armed robbery in Lismore yesterday.

Police have been told about 9.30pm (Saturday 27 March), an unknown man entered a fast-food restaurant on Brewster Street, Lismore, and threatened an employee and customers with a knife while demanding money.

The man stole the till from the register, containing cash, and fled the scene. No one was injured.

Officers from Richmond Police District attended and conducted patrols of the surrounding area; however, the man was not located.

Detectives have commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

At the time of the incident, the man was wearing a black hooded jumper, a balaclava, black shorts, and was carrying a small black and white bag.

Anyone who may have mobile phone or dashcam footage are urged to contact Lismore Police on (02) 6626 0599 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Inquiries continue.
