    A man has died after crashing his paraglider on the eastern side of Mt Maunganui


    Police say he landed about 100 metres into dense bush near the summit, and 4x4 vehicles were needed to reach him.

    He was a 48 year-old local, and died at the scene.

    Tauranga Police are asking anyone who has photos of footage of what happened to get in touch.
