Are you immunised against measles?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Central Otago News

A warning has been issued from across the ditch after two measles-affected Australians visited the lower South Island.

The Southern District Health Board confirmed a Queenstown resident as a new measles case on Friday, bringing the total number of cases in the southern region to 58. The majority of those – 53 – were in a resort. Two cases had been confirmed in Dunedin, along with two in Wanaka, and one in Oamaru.

Those needing advice can call Healthline on 0800 611 116.

Have you had a plant stolen?

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hi neighbours,

We're to keen to know if pot plant and garden thievery is still a common problem and what people are doing about it.

If you've had a pot plant or something else taken from your garden in the last year and would like to share, could you please email homed@stuff.co.nz with your name, your neighbourhood and a quick recap of what was taken and how it happened.

We'd love to hear from you!
