Golden Bay cut off

From Nine To Noon, 9:30 am on 21 February 2018

Golden Bay is cut off after yesterday's storm, with major damage to the Takaka Hill Road, with officials considering evacuating the region by sea if it cannot be reopened quickly. Dairy farmers in the region are assessing the damage and trying to figure out how to get milk supplies away - some farms cannot be accessed after a bridge over the Kaituna river was severely damaged. Kathryn talks with Federated Farmers' Golden Bay President and Takaka dairy farmer Wayne Langford.
