Australia fires: Scott Morrison returns home from Hawaii

From Morning Report, 7:28 am on 23 December 2019

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has apologised for going on holiday while the country struggled with a mounting wildfire crisis.

He cut his family holiday to Hawaii short after he was widely criticised for leaving Australia during the crisis.

One person was found dead on Saturday, and wildfires are raging in three states.
