Bay of Plenty

Taupo Police have today released the name of the 17-year-old boy who died in the Waikato River near Taupo last night.

He is Cole Justice Williams of Feilding.

The circumstances surrounding his death are not suspicious and have been reported to the Coroner.

Police are aware that there were other people on the riverbank who would have seen what happened; a couple of people actually spoke to officers briefly at the scene but left without providing their details. Police would like to speak to these people to get their account of events, or anyone else who has information that might assist the investigation on behalf of the Coroner.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
