Authorities remain stumped by a mystery vapour that left children sick at a Wairarapa school on Friday and prompted a full scale response from emergency services. Police, fire, ambulance, the Red Cross and even the army were called to Carterton's South End School. Residents described a scene reminiscent of the television show Breaking Bad with men in orange suits combing the school grounds, but police say finding the source of the stink is exceptionally difficult and they need the public's help.
