Leaving a mess

From The Panel, 4:09 pm on 23 January 2018

Locals of several popular tourists destinations around the country are upset at the mess being left by freedom campers. Toilet paper and other waste are being left by those who don't have self-contained campervans or motor homes and locals are demanding councils to more to stop it or, at least, police the camping sites better. Bruce Lochere, CEO of the New Zealand Motor Caravan Association, discusses the problem with the panelists.
