The Hawke’s Bay Regional Council is thanking the public for its help with finding the offender of an incident at the Kaipapa Public Access walkway to the Tūtaekurī River.
In mid February some of the access track to the river was washed away due to bank erosion, and it became a health and safety risk.
The Regional Council closed the track, and felled trees across the entrance of the track to stop vehicles entering and possibly driving off the bank and into the river.
Between Wednesday 16 February and Friday 25 February, a large digger has entered the access track and driven over the felled trees.
Regional Council senior ranger Mark Brinsdon says thanks to information from the public, the offender has been indentified.
