Tourists mess up park

The Timaru Herald - - NATIONAL NEWS -

A large group of tourists left rub­bish strewn across a beach-side park in Auck­land, and threat­ened to as­sault peo­ple who com­plained, a wit­ness says. The group, de­scribed by Krista Curnow as an ‘‘Ir­ish fam­ily’’ of ‘‘ap­prox­i­mately 12’’ in­clud­ing two ba­bies, left beer boxes, bot­tles and baby wipes at Taka­puna Beach on Sun­day af­ter­noon. Curnow, 28, filmed the group, and her video showed a young boy – part of the fam­ily – with an Ir­ish ac­cent telling her he would ‘‘knock your brains out’’. Curnow has since re­ported the group to po­lice and said mem­bers of the pub­lic picked up the lit­ter.
