    Two robots have been recovered this week from the Pike River Mine

    Two robots have been recovered this week from the Pike River Mine


    Efforts continue to re-enter the West Coast mine and discover what caused the explosions that killed 29 men.

    The Pike River Recovery Agency says they've now found an army recovery robot - and a Water Corporation robot - which entered the drift before the second explosion.

    They've been handed over to the Police forensic team.
