Image result for nelson coast guard
Where:Nelson marina, Nelson

When:Last Tuesday night and Saturday morning

Image result for nelson coast guardon 10th of June and 6th of June and the 
robber stole when there was training sessions. 

Who:Burglar and coast guard of nelson


What:A burglar stool from the nelson coast guard.The robbers broke a padlock on the boat and stole thousands of dollars worth of gear.They stole a lot of expensive stuff.The robber stole night vision googlies,

2 high powered spot lights,flares,a marine VHF radios and a locate beacon.They had insurance that acted quickly but the coast guard stool has to pay $2000 so they are going to do some fun raisers to get the money to replace the gear the robber stole from one of the nelson coast guard.The boat was moored in the nelson marina away from it's usual spot at the rescue centre at the Wakefield quay (which is not the Wakefield close to us).

My opinion:I fell sorry for them because they have to raise 2000$ to replace their equipment and i don't think they should have to pay just because they did not pay enough for the insurance because it is not there falt they got robbed,also the rescue boat might of been safer where it normally goes and it would of been bad if there was a emergency and that stuff was stolen.


I wonder:I wonder why the robber stole the coast guards gear,I wonder when the police are going to catch the burglar
 and i wounder what the robber needed the equipment for,I wonder where the robber and the gear is now.

New Toilet rule for freedom campers

When:It is going to start next year

Image result for campers
Where:New 
zealand 

Who:governmet
and department of  conversation.

What:People are now going to make people that want to stay at restricted areas provided by the department of conversation have to have a toilet in it.Also it has to fit when the bed is made and it is all the people who want to certify there vehicle as self-contained.Many district councils already only allow self-contained vehicles but next year it is going to be all the restricted areas.

My opinion:I do not think that is that fear on the vans that people use because how are they meant to fit a toilet in a van and it might be for more money because some places you have to pay to dump it and to by a toilet it costs a lot and i know a lot about campers because i have one that is why i chose this article,and it is weird how people thought it was funny because next to the article it was really high on funny.

I wounder:I wounder why they are doing this and i think the restricted areas will not get much people coming because how is a van meant to get a toilet in it with a big bed and other stuff in there.

Sorse:Kiwi kids news

Glossary:Self-contained:means:It has got everything in it.

2017 on Sunday at
5.45 am.

Where:molbrough 

in the Wairau valley

bridge,50km north
of Renwick.

Who:A truck driver.

drove into the bridge.

What:A truck driver crashed into a one lane bridge causing banking and EFTPOS not to work.The crash made the main  alternative  road to pickton be closed but are letting motorcyclist pass.The engine was sent over the edge into the river when the truck crashed.The driver was left in he squashed cab but manged to get out with moderate injuries.


My opinion: That truck driver was really lucky

to be alive and it looks like the truck just fits in the bridge,and you would have to be good at driving a truck because one turn going through that bridge would end up like this truck,and i think the driver did a sudden movement on the control causing it to crash.
