Dead man found
The man was found by a neighbour at 8am and it appears he collapsed after taking a morning swim. He also sustained minor injuries which may suggest he fell down the stairs.
“There are no suspicious circumstances at this stage” he says. “His death appears to be medically related and is currently in the hands of the coroner.”
Arrest after vehicle rammed
Wellsford Police arrested the local man and charged him with wilful damage, assault with weapon and excess of breath and alcohol.
Mark your valuables
“The lines can get cut by passing boats or snagged on rocks but there are some honest people around who hand them in after being found on the beach or floating on the water,” Gough says. “To ensure an easier identification, we’d like owners to mark them in the water-tight compartment.”
