A cordon remains across one of the main routes through Christchurch after a body was found in a Waltham Park this morning. Ferry Road is still partially closed off as police work to identify the man found dead in Edmonds Park. Detective Senior Sergeant Jason Stewart says they're speaking to a number of people, but they aren't actively seeking anyone else in relation to the death. They want to hear from anyone who was in the area between 2.00am and 2:30am. Diversions are in place.
Child poverty advocacy groups are banding together and calling for cross-party action on ending the crisis. Around 30 groups have demanded political parties make good on promises made in run-up to the general election.

National Manager Brenda Pilott said it high time parties work together to eliminate poverty.
It got off to a rocky start, but three orangutans have finally made it to their new home in Christchurch. Charlie, Melur and Wanita arrived at Orana Wildlife Park early this morning, a day after fog delayed their arrival. The Indonesian natives will be living there while Auckland Zoo builds a new South East Asian precinct for the trio. Auckland Zoo's primates team leader Amy Robbins said they've spent a year preparing the hairy apes for the big move.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
