British family accused of ‘terrorising New Zealand’ deny claims

A family of British tourists allegedly facing deportation from New Zealand for their unruly behaviour have hit back at the claims and say they are ‘too scared to sleep at night’.

The tourists, believed to be from Liverpool, were accused of annoying flight passengers, littering a beach and trying to scam restaurants during their trip away.

But grandmother Barbara Doran insists the family have done nothing wrong and are being ‘tortured’ by the public.

‘I’m very, very frightened, honestly,’ Mrs Doran told Daily Mail Australia.

Members of the family, estimated to number between 12 and 15, arrived in the north of New Zealand a week ago to ‘see the Hobbits and mountains’.

But they were soon hit by a wave of allegations, one of which included putting ants into their meals so they wouldn’t have to pay at a restaurant.

Mrs Doran claimed she has ‘never in her life’ entered a restaurant without paying.

‘I’m a grandmother, I’ve got a lot of grandchildren,’ she said.

‘I’m not going to go and get food without paying for it. I’m not going to put myself that low.

‘If I haven’t got the money, I would not go in to that restaurant. I would not go into a shop if I hadn’t got the money to pay for something that I want.

‘I’ve never done it in England, I’m not going to come and do it here.’

Son Joe Doran has been dubbed ‘Honest John’ online after repeatedly giving his name to reporters as as ‘John Johnson’.

A neighbour, who knows the family, told MailOnline: ‘We are family and we stick together.

‘Everything that’s been said about them in New Zealand isn’t true. They are a good family.’

A rogue cabbie was jailed for three years for picking up fake passengers in his taxi- to sell them cocaine. Rhys Hearn, 27, was seen by police to pick up two people but only drive a few hundred yards before dropping them off. A court heard suspicious officers then pulled over Hearn's black cab and found a stash of crack cocaine and wads of cash. On the day undercover officers swooped on Hearn he had already sold seven crack cocaine deals to users. ?? WALES NEWS SERVICEDrug-dealing taxi driver used his cab to sell passengers cocaine
