Fresh effort to recover bodies from Mt Taranaki

From Morning Report, 8:48 am on 6 May 2021

A recovery operation to retrieve the bodies of two climbers who died on Mt Taranaki is underway again on Thursday morning.

The two male climbers have not been named yet but they were from a Christchurch consultancy firm, Tonkin and Taylor.

Bad weather prevented any recovery yesterday.

Local mountain guide George White told Susie Ferguson the recovery won't be straightforward.
