A deflated bouncy castle's been found on the road in Clive, in Hawke's Bay.

Matthew Bennett from the Kohupatiki Marae found a large piece of canvas lying on the road, put it in his van and brought it back home.

He was trying to figure out what it was then realised it had some kind of bladder to it.

Matthew Bennett says he hitched his garden blower to it, pumped it up and saw it was a bouncy castle.


Mr Bennett said it was a windy day and the castle, which may have been for the Art Deco festival, obviously wasn't tied down properly.

He told Hastings police about the find, and suggests anyone who is missing it, should contact them.
