'Fast food' plane flown to quake-hit Kaikoura in NZ

A New Zealand plasterer has organised a plane delivery of hundreds of take-away burgers and pizzas for the town hit hardest by Monday's earthquake.

Robert Coombes, 49, gathered donations, filled a friend's aircraft and flew to Kaikoura in New Zealand's South Island for lunchtime on Friday.

About 2,000 people remain in the town, which is virtually cut off by damage to main roads and railway links.
