From Morning Report, 7:35 am on 27 September 2018

Oranga Tamariki is being criticised for placing a 12-year-old in a motel. The boy was found wandering the streets of Hastings with a stolen bike and a knife when he was supposed to be under the ministry of children's protection. The boy's lawyer Don Kennedy told our reporter Anusha Bradley he'd been bailed into Oranga Tamariki's care.
