Stranded Ferry update

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:49 pm on 14 November 2016

The Interislander ferry docking was aborted last night, with about 20 passengers stranded on board. The Kaiarahi had left Wellington at about 9pm and was coming into Picton just as the earthquake struck, at around midnight. Kiwirail Group has just held a press conference. RNZ's reporter, Joanna MacKenzie, was there, she's with me in our Auckland studio.
