Second boat runs aground in Bay of Plenty

As if the Rena wasn't enough, a recreational launch has grounded on the eastern side of Motiti Island.

That's not far from the Astrolabe Reef, where the Rena is stuck fast and leaking oil.

The Bay of Plenty Regional Council says a salvage crew has been on board the launch and no oil leakage has been observed.

The crew is continuing to monitor the situation.
