Aucklanders are outraged that a large party took place on the North Shore while the city is still in a strict alert level 3 lockdown.

Brian from New Lynn

The city's current restrictions mean outdoor gatherings between two households can take place with a maximum of 10 people. No indoor gatherings with other bubbles are allowed. Footage posted to social media shows many people allegedly disregarding this rule as more than 50 people partied at an apartment believed to be on the North Shore on Saturday night. The videos posted to Instagram, many of which were later deleted, show a number of young people packed into an apartment drinking, dancing on tables, and kissing. Some of the attendees who posted videos online are social media influencers, a few of which have tens of thousands of followers. "People need to stay the f**k home instead of ruining it for everyone else," one person wrote on Facebook about the video. "As someone in Auckland who's going by the rules, we do not claim them," another said. Police confirmed they have received "multiple reports" via the 105 COVID-breach reporting system in relation to the videos. They advise there may be an update in the coming days if more information becomes available. It is also alleged one attendee at the party obtained an essential worker pass to get into Auckland.
