Pike re-entry 'a systematic process, not a race'

From Morning Report, 8:37 am on 21 November 2017

A re-entry into Pike River will be a step by step process an expert says. The families of the 29 men died in the Pike River Mine Disaster have been campaigning for years to re-enter the mine and at least try to retrieve any remains. The Pike River Recovery Agency will be established in January to start planning a re-entry. Tony Forster is a former chief mines inspector who's been advising the Pike River victims' families.
