SUNDAY NOVEMBER 7 2021 NEWS 11 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Ghastly find on beach A GIANT cod that came off second best in a run-in with a shark has washed up on a Queensland beach in an alarming early morning find for beachgoers. The carcass of the halfeaten cod washed up on to Narrowneck, near the Gold Coasts Main Beach on Saturday morning. Gold Coast weatherman Luke Bradnam showed off a video of what remained of the fish on social media. It is not known whether the cod died before the attack or where the feeding frenzy took place. The fish was found not far from where Mr Bradnam earlier in the year helped pull a body from the surf moments after he had been on air. In February, the Nine presenter had been reporting on dangerous weather conditions at Narrowneck when he was flagged down by a boogie boarder alerting him to what appeared to be someone struggling in the big seas. Just after I got off air chatting with you guys a boogie boarder alerted me here at Narrowneck, alerted me he thought hed seen someone struggling again out in the surf, he told Channel 9 after the tragic discovery. Support for mums Grace Hambling with her husband and two of her three children. A MOTHER of three has been left feeling isolated and anxious as a result of limited perinatal mental health services in remote communities. Grace Hambling, who lives on a station 700km from Katherine and 400km from Kununurra, had no local support for her perinatal mental health. Ms Hambling relocated to the NT when her third child was three months old and was disappointed at the lack of support available for her anxiety. It was the what ifs that concerned me, not so much the what was, she said. What if a snake bit her or even me? What if she gets sick? As a first-time mum, the distance to hospital and the access issues related to wet season certainly played on my mind. To better support remote mothers during Perinatal Mental Health Week, 42 organisations will unite between November 7 and 13 to close the gap in limited resources for new parents living in remote communities. Program clinician Amelia Walker said the new partnership between mental health services would aim to recognise the strength of many com ing together with a unified message that we hear you, we see you and there is support that may be just the right fit for you. November 12 will be dedicated to recognising the limits of resources in rural Australia and addressing the concerns. When Ms Hambling encountered some struggles with breastfeeding, no local support was available and doctors made the decision to fly her daughter to Katherine. Towns often have mothers groups or playgrounds you can attend to socialise with other mums who can help normalise what youre feeling, she said. Living in a city and knowing help was close by would have alleviated many of my worries. Having access to lactation consultants or mental health specialists would have been great. Ms Hambling said November 12 would be an appreciated day to many mothers in her situation who were also failed by limited support. I think, particularly for remote women, we feel we have to be tough, she said. I hope this week helps women to feel a bit more comfortable in talking about their struggles. Its OK to ask for help and its OK to need some time alone. BROOKE GIBBS Police, forensics comb for evidence at Cleos alleged abductors house POLICE and a team of forensic experts have returned to Cleo Smiths alleged abductors house to comb through more evidence, which could take weeks to complete. Forensic experts returned to Terence Darrell Kellys house on Saturday with about half a dozen officers, who were observed in full body suits and masks. More brown paper bags were taken away from the twobedroom property in Carnarvon, which is 1.5km from the local police station and 3km from Cleos family home. Kelly lived alone in govern ment housing when he allegedly abducted Cleo and held her captive in his house for 18 days before police raided the property and found her playing with toys in a locked room. It comes as Kelly has moved into a maximum security prison on remand in Perth. Kelly, 36, was flown from the small community to Perth on Friday to Casuarina prison. The prison is Western Australias main maximum-security jail and only takes in male prisoners. It is also home to some of the states most dangerous criminals. They include serial Claremont killer Bradley Robert Edwards, child rapist and killer Dante Arthurs, and serial bank robber and prison escapee Brenden Abbott. Edwards will most likely die in jail as he was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murders of Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon in the mid 1990s. Arthurs was convicted of the murder of eight-year-old Sofia Rodriguez-Urrutia Shu, who was strangled and sexually abused before her body was left in a disabled bathroom stall in Canningvale, WA, in 2006.
