Northland hotel scraps pokies after baby abandoned

From Morning Report, 8:43 am on 28 May 2018

A hotel in Northland is packing away their pokie machines after a woman left her baby outside while she played the machines. The Rawene Masonic Hotel let punters know on its Facebook page they would no longer be providing the gaming machines after the incident and hoped their community would be supportive of its decision. One of the owners of the Rawene Masonic Hotel is Glen Dick. He tells Guyon Espiner what's going on.
