SES issues Minor Flood warning for Lismore

Moderate rainfall across the Wilsons River catchment since Wednesday has caused significant river level rises along the Wilsons River and its tributaries, which has the potential to cause minor flooding along the Wilsons River at Lismore late Friday morning.

Two of the three travellers who sent the Byron area into a COVID lockdown in August this year will have ‘appearances’ in local courts today, one at Waverley Local Court and one at Lismore Local Court.

Nineteen-year-old Kristian Radovanovic will be sentenced in the Waverley Local Court after pleading guilty to two charges of failing to comply with electronic registration (QR codes), one charge of failing to comply with a COVID direction, and one charge of failing to wear a face mask on public transport or in a taxi.

His father Zoran Radovanovic is believed to be currently residing in Serbia and will not be in Lismore today for a police mention of his case. Radovanovic senior pleaded guilty to four charges of failing to comply with electronic registration codes (QR codes).

Zoran Radovanovic drove to the North Coast in late July with his son Kristian and another teenage son, to look at real estate and failed to use QR codes to check into venues, including having a massage in Byron Bay.

The family became ill while in the region and Zoran required hospitalisation, where he tested positive to COVID-19, as did his children.

The third member of the family is a minor under the care of his father, and therefore not charged.
