Thursday, 20 March Marlborough Express (New Zealand) Irish tourist told off for waste dumping Irish tourist Ray Glynn got more than he bargained for when he emptied grey water waste from a campervan in a Picton Supermarket yesterday. Constable Tim Goodyer of Picton and an angry onlooker were waiting for him when he returned to the campervan with shopping. Picton resident Paul Beauchamp-Legg said he saw a cap underneath the campervan being opened and "white muck" pouring out of the vehicle. "What I'd like to say about this is unprintable. There are special places at motor camps for this," he said. Mariner's Mall deputy manager Pat Sowden said he was disgusted someone would do this in a public place. "It was gushing out for quite a long time. There was a really bad smell with the waste containing pea shells and corn," he said. Mr Glynn who's touring New Zealand with his wife, Siobhan, said he was shocked the action had caused such a "furore". "This was a genuine mistake. When I rented the campervan the agent said the grey water tank could be emptied directly on to the side of the road. "I pulled in beside the drain here (in the supermarket) and didn't realise ..." he said. "I am disappointed with myself that I didn't realise this would be such an issue. I don't want to paint a bad image of tourists in this country or wreak havoc on it."
