Rena split

Just over three months after the MV Rena hit the Astrolabe Reef the ship has split in two.

In the immediate aftermath of the grounding the government and Maritime New Zealand were criticised for not acting faster.

But after three months of difficult and often dangerous work by the salvors there are still containers on board.

It would have been difficult if not impossible for them to have done anything more and done it any faster.
