A grieving UK family wanting to sell their yacht in New Zealand could have it imported here - but it will cost them tens of thousands of dollars.

The family's application to sail to New Zealand on humanitarian grounds was declined just under two weeks ago.

The Ministry of Health said late yesterday it's looking at their case as a matter of urgency. Tracy Neal reports.
