Verse of The Day
“Ka mea a Ihu ki a ia, Kia whakapaua tou ngakau, tou wairua, tou hinengaro, ki te aroha ki te Ariki, ki tou Atua. Ko te tuatahi tenei, ko te kupu nui. He rite ano te tuarua ki tenei, Kia aroha koe ki tou hoa tata, ano ko koe.” (Matthew 22:37-39)

At least one person is believed dead after a car left the road and plunged into a river north of Whangarei.

A towtruck had been sent, but a crane was needed to remove the vehicle from the river where it was submerged about 7m deep.

One, and possibly two, people were believed to be trapped in the vehicle.
