Police have released the name of the woman found dead in a horse paddock near Hastings yesterday.

Camille Reremoana Ferris, 53, of Gisborne, was found in the paddock yesterday afternoon by a horse rider.

Ms Ferris' death is still being treated as unexplained.

Detective Sergeant Darren Pritchard said Ms Ferris' body had been removed from the scene this afternoon and a post mortem was due to be held on Monday.

"The results of the post mortem will help us ascertain how she died," Pritchard said.

"Until then, we cannot confirm if the death is suspicious or otherwise.

"There is still a lot of work to be done to find out the circumstances of her death."

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.
