Local body vote papers left on doorstep below sealed letter box

Caroline Williams Reporter from Stuff

A stack of six envelopes containing voting papers for the local body elections were spotted at the doorstep of a derelict building on a busy central Auckland footpath on Thursday, despite the letter box being taped shut. NZ Post admitted the delivery person had left the voting papers on the footpath, but said it took the responsibility of delivering voting papers "very seriously".

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.
