TADS – 21/6/17: Pike River = the real story

Almost half of all Kiwis support sending people back into Pike River Mine to look for evidence, and to potentially recover bodies.

In the latest research poll, 45 percent support the idea, 35 percent say no and 20 percent don’t know.

The poll was taken after footage was released last month of two men working safely in the access tunnel, but before new video was released on Sunday showing no sign of an inferno at the coal face.

But the issue of mine re-entry remains politically divided.
