Former Gulf News editor dies

Simon Johnston, who has edited the Gulf News on Waiheke for many seasons, has died after an accident on the Devonport ferry on Sunday.
Simon was great fun to have around. Apart from his excellent writing he was also a dab hand at playing his guitar at various social occasions and venues.
