The man, in his mid 30s, hurt his ankle near the Waitewaewae Hut, behind the Otaki Forks, while on a tramping trip with friends on Sunday. Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter base manager Fergus MacLachlan said the man s friends walked him 40 minutes back to the hut, gave him their food and left to get help. The helicopter was sent in at first light and reached Shoulder Knob overlooking the hut at about 6.30am, however the fog was too heavy for them to enter the valley below so they waited on the ridge for an hour. With no sign of the fog clearing it left and another helicopter was sent in around midday, arriving at the peak at 12.45pm by which point the fog had lifted enough to fly in and winch a St John paramedic down to the man before the pair were winched out. Mr MacLachlan said the weather then closed in and the helicopter was forced to fly up the east side of the range to Palmerston North Hospital. No Hughes details Police are refusing to say when they will announce the results of their investigation into former List MP Darren Hughes. A source close to Mr Hughes said the former Otaki MP had only been interviewed once dur- ing the three-month investi- gation into an early-morning incident in Wellington. Detective Inspector Mike Johnson would not say when that investigation will be com- pleted, but said no decision had been made yet on whether charges would be laid. We re in the hands of some process stuff, and as soon as that s been completed there will be a press release, he said. We ve got some ideas [on an announcement date] but I m not commenting on that at this stage. We re as keen as anyone to move it forward, he said. Asked about the normal dur- ation of investigations of this nature Mr Johnson said every- one was different and it depends on the circumstances . Mr Hughes resigned his seat and quit his campaign for the Otaki electorate following allegations from an 18-year-old male about an early-morning incident on March 1. Mr Hughes has been unavail- able for comment since news broke of the investigation. Airport hours spelt out Kapiti Coast District Council has revealed the Kapiti Coast Airport s restrictions on flying hours after a resident requested clarification on the restrictions in a letter to the Kapiti Observer. Council sustainable develop- ment manager Jim Ebenhoh said the curfew is a result of an Environment Court decision 18 months ago relating to the air- port plan change and strict con- ditions on airport operations. He said aircraft operations must not occur between 10.30pm and 6am, while helicopters must not operate between 10pm and 7am. The answer to who decides is that the restrictions are the result of an Environment Court decision on Plan Change 73 to the District Plan, he said. This change was made opera- tive less than 18 months ago and is not due for review for some time. There are exceptions to the operating rules for disrupted flights or emergency situations. Circuit training at the airport is not allowed between 9.30pm and 6am during the winter months, or before 9am and after 6pm on Sundays and public holidays. Mr Ebenhoh said specific details relating to engine noise from engine testing can be found on the council website or on the airport website. There is also an airport noise complaint line, 04 918 3434, and the website has details on a com- munity liaison group to review noise complaints, and a noise management plan. Stolen caravan returned Police stopped a car towing a stolen caravan in Paraparaumu, but only realised the caravan was stolen when the driver ran from police. Constable Jason McFarlane said when the car was stopped during a routine check about 4.20am on Monday on Tutanekai St, the 20-year-old driver got out and ran away. The passenger, 22, stayed in the car, and was arrested by police for the theft of the cara- van from Heihei Pl, just around the corner. The driver was found a short time later at a Buckley Gr prop- erty. The men appeared in court on Monday and will reappear early next month, Mr McFarlane said. The $14,000 caravan was returned to its owner, who had not realised it had been stolen.
