Milson firefighters were called to the Palmerston North Golf Club last night for an unattended burn off.

The club had a permit to set trees and shrubs in its burning pit on fire, but the wind picked up and firefighters were called to the Brightwater Tce course shortly after 6.30pm to check.

Station officer Nick Pine said it was nothing of concern except it wasn't being watched.

They found a worker to keep an eye on it.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
