So far today there are no new reports of containers being washed ashore from the Rena.

A helicopter is patrolling the coast checking for floating containers between Waihi and Matakana this morning.

Five containers and their contents have been removed by road from Waihi Beach and recovery teams are working to remove 10 more, in an area stretching from Bowentown to just north of Waihi Beach.

Plans are in development to remove 11 containers from Matakana Island.
