Closure for Possum's family
The family of Possum Bourne says it has a sense of closure - but his widow says today's guilty plea cannot bring back the rally driver.

Michael Barltrop has admitted a charge of aggravated careless use of a vehicle, causing death.
He was due to stand trial in Invercargill today on a charge of dangerous driving.

Peggy Bourne welcomed Barltrop's change of heart but says nothing can bring back her husband.
She says they will try to be as positive as they can and move forward with their lives.
Peggy Bourne says the impact of losing him will affect her and their children for the rest of their lives, and they will always love him and miss him.
Michael Barltrop's vehicle collided with Bourne's in April last year, during a practice for the Race To The Sky at Cardrona.

He will be sentenced next month.

The wheels of justice turn rather slowly here!!!!!!
