Housing New Zealand has apologised and has launched an internal investigation into how Mongrel Mob members were given the address of Housing New Zealand's Lower Hutt manager and another woman who complained about them.

Emily Adlam took scholarship exams in six subjects last year - and gained outstanding scholar awards in all of them - the only student in the country ever to do this under the NCEA.
She was also the top student in the country in physics, statistics and latin in her scholarship exams - and scored very highly in her other three subjects: calculus, english and chemistry.
Emily Adlam is just 18 years old, but already an accomplished musician, scientist, debater, poet and writer.... but her real passion is quantum physics.
