Body Found - A body has been found washed up on a Waiheke Island beach. The body is believed to be that of a missing 14 year old girl who fell off the Waiheke Island ferry last night. Police will be reinterviewing witnesses to the accident today.

Victim Gets Damages - The lawyer for a man hurt while in police custody says damages awarded to him reflect the extent of his injuries. The injuries were inflicted when police ushered the man from the Masterton District Court and to a holding cell. The lawyer says his client’s jaw was broken, and his tongue was partially severed. $30,000 have been awarded in exemplary damages and $25,000 in costs.

A group of White House officials have arrived in Christchurch to plan US President Bill Clinton’s visit following APEC. The team of around 50 arrived in Christchurch over the weekend and will be visiting local attractions today before visiting Queenstown tomorrow. The Prime Minister Jenny Shipley says Mr Clinton and the Chinese president are likely to visit the city as part of a state visit for APEC. This, she says, will be a huge opportunity for Canterbury and for New Zealand to show off our economy, the things we produce, the scenery and a “terrific chance for us to perhaps forge trade relationships with both of our visitors both of whom have incredibly important economies.”
