Poorly-organised Ngaruroro trip attracts criticism

An adult and four teenagers were brought out after overnighting near the Ngaruroro River in Hawkes Bay. Police described the trip as “irresponsible.” The group was woefully under-equipped, apparently lacking helmets and warm clothing, and with cigarettes instead of food. The group ignored advice and expected to do an overnight trip in five hours.
