From Morning Report, 8:55 am on 11 April 2019

A family in Whangarei is elated to be reunited after a backtrack by Immigration New Zealand. Canadian Jimmy Lambert arrived in Auckland on Tuesday and is now with his wife Juanita Craig and their two children. Mr Lambert had originally been told he couldn't travel to New Zealand because he has multiple sclerosis. But Immigration New Zealand later admitted it had made a mistake and issued him with a medical waiver.
