Claim bodies still intact in Pike Mine

The wife of a man who died in the Pike River Mine says video footage shows there are up to six bodies still intact inside.

Anna Osborne told The AM Show this morning that this is the evidence they need for a manned re-entry into the mine to proceed.

"There are a number of bodies, we're talking probably four, five, six at the moment, we're still going through footage, but at the request of the families at this stage we're not going to release those," Anna Osborne told The AM Show.

"But there are definitely loved ones' bodies fully intact."

Osborne lost her husband Milton in the disaster.

Twenty-nine men died in the explosion. Two were injured.

The families of the victims have been campaigning for re-entry so they can bring their loved ones home.
