Mo­torists tak­ing ve­hi­cles onto Ca­ble Beach have been granted a tem­po­rary re­prieve, with tra­di­tional owner Joseph Roe agree­ing to de­lay at­tempts to pros­e­cute driv­ers.

The sec­tion of beach di­rectly north of the rocks be­low the Ca­ble Beach am­phithe­atre is part of a reg­is­tered Abo­rig­i­nal her­itage site known as Billingurru and Mr Roe con­tends that the vol­ume of traf­fic now on the beach is in­ter­fer­ing with the site.

Pro­test­ers who have camped for weeks at Ma­nari Road, the front­line for demon­stra­tions against the pro­posed gas hub at James Price Point, packed up and left on Sun­day, shift­ing on to post an emo­tional silent sen­try closer to town.

In the early hours of Thurs­day morn­ing, Broome Shire rangers gave pro­test­ers 24 hours to dis­man­tle their camps and move on, warn­ing that those who did not com­ply would re­ceive a $100 fine per per­son per day.
