GRANNY KIDNAP: An Auckland grandmother has been found guilty of abducting her four grand-daughters. She says took them because their mother was leaving them home alone. The grandmother tried three times to get CYFS to intervene. CYFS says it was a low priority case because they were not being sexually or violently abused.

BIZARRE ACCIDENT: A bizarre accident near Ashburton claimed the lives today when a trailer detached itself from a furniture truck and collided with a car.
