Caroline Williams Reporter from Manukau Courier

Auckland police are appealing for information on a car involved in a fatal hit-and-run in south Auckland.
The “white or light” coloured Honda Stream hit 79-year-old Jalil Mousses at speed as he was crossing Manurewa’s Russell Rd towards his parked car on Friday, June 26.
The driver allegedly fled the scene and Mousses, a father of five and grandfather of 12, later died at Middlemore Hospital.
He urged anyone who knows the vehicle’s owner or who has seen a Honda Stream with front panel damage to contact police.
Anyone with information can contact the Crime Squad on 09 261 1321 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

NZ versus Australia

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We had a story yesterday about a New Zealander living in Sydney who's caused quite a stir online after posting a video listing reasons why Australia is better than NZ. It prompted a lot of debate so we'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the differences between the countries. Do you think one is better than the other and, if so, why? Please remember your comment could be included in an article unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.
