Just stopping by, not coming in

The 179m long bulk carrier Western Maple, moored at the T/U sheds Dunedin yesterday, is due to leave for Timaru at 10.30am today, having earlier arrived from Lyttelton with fertiliser-related materials to be delivered to Ravensdown.

The 10-year-old vessel is Hong Kong flagged, and the crew of about 20 was not permitted to leave the ship’s immediate vicinity, under Level 3 restrictions.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
