"We are returning." The Minister responsible for Pike River re-entry Andrew Little has made a major announcement on re-entry to the mine, after the 2010 explosion that killed 29 men. "I am satisfied there is now a safe plan for entry & recovery. Therefore today I am announcing that I have approved the single entry plan," he says. "Re-entry of the Pike River Mine will proceed. To the Pike River families, to New Zealand, we are returning."
