DESPITE strong warnings from the Tweed Shire Council and Tweed Police, yet another YouTube clip of thrill seekers risking their lives at Clarrie Hall Dam has emerged.

The clip shows a number of teens climbing over and around barbed wire fences, ignoring clear warning signs, to take a boogie board ride on the flooding spillway.

There's also footage of a young man back flipping into the dam from a high wall.

The 3.13 minute clip names seven people participating in the Dam Rats video which was uploaded on March 12.

On Saturday the Daily News broke the story about a group of teens trespassing to take a ride down the spillway.

The video has since been removed from the popular video uploading site.

Tweed Shire Council said it was looking into seeing if it were possible to have the footage taken down from YouTube

Public access to the site was blocked on Tuesday for an upgrade to the spillway. The site will reopen in May 2014.
