09:05 "The sheer numbers need to be managed"
Some Dunedin city councillors are bitterly disappointed over the failure of the council to pass a bylaw banning freedom campers without toilets. The council narrowly voted down the proposed bylaw, which would have seen all vehicles without a toilet, rubbish and wastewater facilities being directed to camping grounds. Dunedin City Councillor and former chair of the Otago Peninsular Community Board, Christine Garey who supported the bylaw, says the city cannot cope with the numbers and central government needs to step up and help provide a solution. Kathryn also talks with Councillor Lee Vandervis, who opposed the change.

Kathryn Ryan speaks with Kim Wall's friend and fellow journalist, Sonia Paul.
