Maori Queen home for birthday

The Maori Queen's health has improved enough for her to be out of Waikato Hospital.

There has been concern for Dame Te Atairangikaahu's well-being in the lead-up to her 75th birthday today.

She has been undergoing dialysis treatment, and there have been unconfirmed reports her health had taken a turn for the worse.

Waikato Hospital says the Maori Queen was discharged to the care of her family earlier this week.
