The six-tonne propeller which fell off the interisland ferry Aratere has been found in the Cook Strait.

The propeller was found at a depth of about 130m yesterday, and Kiwirail spokeswoman Sophie Lee said the company would now work through options for retrieval.

Scanning equipment was used to locate the propeller, thought to be about two nautical miles (3.7km) outside Tory Channel, where it was lost on November 5.

Further information would be available later today, Lee said.
