Parents Leah and Joshua said they

“We found out Hudson’s gender before
he was born, so we were prepared and
extremely excited,” Mr Wills said.
“Hudson was due on December 28 –

we kept thinking, ‘Today will be the day’,

Police are reminding locals about
the seriousness of illegal fireworks,
following reports of sightings on New
Loxton Sergeant Mark Howie said while no
official reports were made to police, they were
aware of a number of incidents.
“You can receive an expiation for it and
whenever we get a call and find it has been
going on, places can be searched, you can
have all those things taken off of you and it
becomes a bit of an issue,” he said.
“It’s just not smart, especially in summer.”
New Year’s Eve reached a top of 36.4C in
Loxton, sparking a bushfire concern.
“I know it had cooled down a bit by mid-
night, but still,” Sgt Howie said.
“It’s just silly.”
A Wheatley Road resident – who wishes to
remain anonymous – said loud bangs could be
heard from 9pm onwards.
“The whole of Thiele’s Flat is tinder dry,”
the resident said.
“I don’t mind the noise – I accept we have
noise on New Year’s Eve – but the fire risk is
what was terrifying me.
“If they had landed on Media Island, the
whole island would have gone up.”
If you feel your safety or the safety of others
is at risk, contact the police on 131 444 or 000
in an emergency.
