National Radio 8am Bulletin

Helen Clark – Jenny Shipley - Plane Missing – Alexandra – Queenstown – Timaru Girls – Potholers Found

HELEN CLARK: Labour Leader Helen Clark says she is not complacent going into the final week of the election campaign. She says that last time the Nats brought out attack ads in the final week and the Labour Party had no money in reserve…. She says that won’t happen this time.

JENNY SHIPLEY: PM Jenny Shipley sayts National will spend the final week drawing a contrast between Labour and National. We do not want to go backwards, she says.

PLANE MISSING: Police say the weather is fine and sea calm at the site of the search for a Piper Cherokee aircraft near the Waipara river mouth. Two bags from the plane have been found in the sea.

ALEXANDRA: Cabinet asked to consider helping Alexandra following floods.

QUEENSTOWN: A resident whose house is threatened at Frankton is threatening court action against the Queenstown Lakes District Council.

TIMARU GIRLS: Taxpayers are still paying dearly for an employment dispute at Timaru Girls High School.

POTHOLERS FOUND: Seven potholers who have spent the last 10 days underground in France have now emerged – alive. The search had become desperate for the seven potholers.
