Punter 'shocked' at TAB's reluctance to investigate counterfeit notes

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Rangiora's Bruce Gasson says he was “shocked and annoyed” when he reported receiving counterfeit notes in a racing day payout and was told by the TAB and police there was not much they could do.

After Stuff inquired about the case, both agencies appeared to have amended their response.

Gasson was contacted by the TAB over the weekend and told the agency would reimburse him for his loss.

Meanwhile, on Monday morning police officers arrived at his Rangiora home to collect the counterfeit notes.

Gasson said his concern was less about being reimbursed and more about the fact that counterfeit money was making its way through a national betting agency’s system.

Covid-19: Aucklanders should take level 3 restrictions with them

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

Flights from Auckland to the other main cities have continued as normal since the Auckland region moved to Covid-19 alert level 3 and the rest of New Zealand moved to alert level 2 on Sunday.

Some 108 flights departed Auckland Airport on Monday, including 15 to Christchurch, 14 to Wellington and seven to Queenstown.

Those travelling during the weekend included about 2000 Aucklanders who were in Christchurch for the city’s largest outdoor music festival, Electric Avenue.

Microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles said anyone travelling from Auckland needed to take their level 3 restrictions with them because they could unknowingly be incubating the virus.
