Poll: Should gas heaters be banned?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

A leaky gas heater sent six people from Melville to hospital - one in serious condition.

Firefighters were called to the smell of gas and found a leaky heater at the scene.

The poisoning has prompted calls to ban heaters like the one involved - something which has already happened in Canada and most of Europe.
(Note: the image of the heater is a file photo, to show the kind of heaters referred to.)

Which 'summer' are you having?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

It's been a mixed summer so far for New Zealand. Much of the country has seen record breaking temperatures, drought-conditions and scrub fires. But in recent days the West Coast and Southland have experienced heavy rains, flooding, evacuations and closed roads. Our thoughts are with affected.

Our skies have been coloured by smoke blown over from the Australian bushfires, meanwhile Wellingtonians are just stoked if they get to see the sun.

How has your summer been?
