A drunken speedster is apprehended in the Royal National Park over the long weekend.
At 2.25pm on Monday 1st October, 2018 Police were patrolling the Royal National Park due to over crowding issues being the Labour Day holiday. During this time police detected a BMW sedan South upon Sir Bertram Stevens Dr approaching Curra Moors walking track.
