From First Up, 5:20 am on 7 May 2019

The CEO of the Pike River Recovery Agency say's he's hopeful they'll be able to re-enter the mine sooner rather than later. Dinghy Pattinson told Checkpoint they can fix the faulty monitoring equipment that caused the delay in re-entering the mine on Friday, within days - provided the weather is good. But any re-rentry will now be a smaller affair - as out of town families had travelled at their own expense be there on Friday. First Up producer Lydia Batham spoke with Family Reference spokesperson Anna Osborne, who lost her husband Milton in the disaster, about what will happen going forward.
