A foreign tourist's instinctive reaction to swerve to the
right when faced with an oncoming car resulted in serious
injury to his wife and the woman driving the other vehicle,

A Palmerston man who ''groomed'' and sexually violated a
young girl over two years will be in jail for less than a
decade, but his victim faces a lifetime inside her own
prison, Judge Kevin Phillips says.
