WorkSafe has laid charges against 10 organisations and three individuals in relation to the Whakaari White Island disaster.

Worksafe says it won't be releasing the investigation report, because the matter is now before the courts. RNZ News reporter, Sarah Robson, gives an update including the organisations that have come forward since WorkSafe announced the charges.
