CARAVANNER CAUSES FUEL CHAOS AT THE BOWSER
CLUMSY caravanner created a major drama after
colliding with a fuel pump at a NSW service station. The errant
traveller's RV clipped a bowser as the rig was leaving a Caltex servo at
Gunnedah, tearing a fuel delivery hose from the pump and causing diesel to
swamp the forecourt. Amazingly, the caravanner then drove off apparently

accident occurred "unbeknownst" to the driver.

Homeless being impacted by law
Petition calls for bushfire victims

are calling for a change in NSW law so that homeless bushfire victims can
use caravans for as long as they need. Over 500 have signed an
change.org petition demanding the homeless be allowed to use
their caravans as their home during rebuilding work. Organiser Brett
Wilson, who is aiming for 1000 signatures, said victims were being impacted by a law restricting use to two
days at a time and no more than 60 days in total a year. "The rebuilding
of homes may take longer than temporary accommodation will be available,
and in some more remote it could take much longer," his petition to NSW
Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Minister for Planning and Public Spaces
Robert Stokes says. "Where are those bushfire victims
expected to live if this law is enacted and how are they expected to earn
a living if farmers can't live on their property?"
