Native Affairs - Lesley's Legacy

By Native Affairs

Lesley Wehi-Jack was just 19-years-old when she was killed after a violent gas explosion.

Worksafe New Zealand has successfully prosecuted her Northland landlord for failing to keep his tenant safe.

73-year-old Peter Mcleod was found guilty of breaching three charges under the Gas Act after he performed unauthorised D.I.Y. jobs on his Ruakaka property.

Her whānau is still coming to terms with her horrific death.  As Jodi Ihaka found their story is a warning for all.
