Vegan fish and chips - would you try them?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Central Leader

Kia ora neighbours, Grey Lynn's newest vegan joint Wise Boys is serving vegan 'fish' and chips, with beer-battered banana blossoms in place of snapper.

Swimming warnings at Auckland beaches

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.

The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.

It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.
Check here to see where's safe to swim.
