A GISBORNE woman and two young children are in Tauranga Hospital — the woman critical — after the car they were in plunged 18 metres off the highway...


Gorge plunge: A 25-year-old Gisborne woman and two young children in a small car plunged off the highway about halfway through the Waioeka Gorge yesterday. They were lucky, police say, and the photo shows why. Passers-by and emergency crews rescued and carried all three up the steep slope on stretchers. The woman was trapped in the car.

Poll

The Psychoactive Substances Act does not allow blanket bans for legal highs, so councils have to determine where they would prefer the products to be sold. Gisborne District Council has opted to allow retailers to set up in the industrial subdivision and on Gladstone Road, between Reads Quay and Roebuck Road. This draft policy now goes out to public consultation. Do you agree with their decision?
