A parole hearing for sex offender Stewart Murray Wilson was put off because he could not reach his lawyer.

Wilson, dubbed the "Beast of Blenheim", appeared before the Parole Board on March 4.

He had no lawyer with him and told the board that was because he had been unable to contact him.

The board agreed to postpone the hearing for a month.

Wilson is serving a 21-year jail term for sexual and violent offending against women and girls.

He was recalled to prison last year after breaching parole conditions.
