'Loud hotel party' leads to COVID-19 charge

A man has been charged after a "loud party" in a Sydney CBD hotel, as NSW Police continue to crack down on COVID-19 breaches.

At about 4am yesterday, officers were called to the hotel and found just two people in the room reported.

An 18-year-old Punchbowl man admitted he was there to "hang out with friends", and checks revealed he had been previously issued with an infringement notice for breaching the Public Health Act.

He's accused of assaulting police as they tried to arrest him.

The man was granted bail in court yesterday, and will face court again on June 4.

Another man was charged after police encountered him at a shopping centre in Mt Druitt in Sydney's west, where it was allegedly revealed he had received three infringement notices previously.

He was charged with not complying with issued directions and is set to appear in court at a future date.

NSW Police have also issued 10 further infringement notices in the past 24 hours, including to a man pulled over while driving who was supposed to be in self-isolation.

Anzac Day tradition cancelled by Queensland authorities

A group of pilots have been told they can't conduct their annual flyover to commemorate Anzac Day because of coronavirus restrictions.

Anzac Day tradition cancelled by Queensland authorities

A group of pilots have been told they can't conduct their annual flyover to commemorate Anzac Day because of coronavirus restrictions.

The decision, labelled "bureaucracy gone mad", has sparked outrage among the aviation community who are calling for common sense to prevail.

Opposition MP David Crisafulli says the premier must intervene to save a long-standing tradition he says is "zero risk" when it comes to coronavirus.

He has written to Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young demanding she reconsider a refusal to let the Warbirds Group at Caboolture Aerodrome honour veterans tomorrow.

He says he cannot fathom how the flyover has been refused a coronavirus exemption when it will involve four pilots, separately flying four World War II-era planes that are kept at four separate hangars.

Mr Crisafulli has assured Dr Young the distance between the pilots and people on the ground "will exceed 1.5 metres".

"When a decision is taken that has absolutely no connection with reality, you've got to stand up and call it for what it is," the MP told Alan Jones on Nine radio.

Coronavirus: Family of veteran find new way to commemorate

"This is punch-drunk bureaucrats who are power hungry and it needs to be called out."

In a statement Dr Young did not reveal why an exemption was refused.

"Any determination around non-essential business activity on this special day is difficult," she said.

She said there were other ways to mark Anzac Day, including the Light the Dawn initiative encouraging people to pay tribute from their driveways, balconies and front porches.

David Crowe, from the Warbirds Group, told 9News they were disappointed by the decision.

"We did set down what we were planning to do and they said because of COVID-19 restrictions our application was unsuccessful," he said.

"We accepted that (decision) and obviously were disappointed.

"The children get very excited as well and it's an opportunity for young people to see older planes, what the war veterans flew during that time.

"We're very disappointed ... we didn't find anything that was specific to flying activities."

He said Mr Crisafulli - a Gold Coast-based MP - heard about the situation and decided to step in to see if he could save an event that's been running since 2005.

"This is the first time we have had to cancel," Mr Crowe said.

On the Gold Coast, flying activities were being advertised as late this morning before they too were cancelled.

"It was purely aimed at those people that were going to stand on their driveway and hold up a flag," Peter, a pilot from the Gold Coast, said.
