What does it cost to stay warm at home?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

If this cold snap is getting to you but you're worried about the cost of cranking up your heating, don't despair.

We asked the energy experts to breakdown the running costs of all our favourite winter warmers, so you can work out how to get the best heating bang for your buck.

And while it's no shock that firing up a 2Kw electric heater doesn't come cheap, the price of a warm bed for a toasty night's sleep might surprise you. Check out the full rundown, including electric blankets, hot showers, heated towel rails and more, here.

What do you think needs to be done about e-scooter safety?

Mandy Te Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hi neighbours, a person is fighting for their life after an e-scooter accident. The accident took place in St Mary's Bay on Monday. One person has been taken to Auckland City Hospital with critical injuries. There have been ongoing talks since e-scooters have gained popularity in Auckland - do you think more seriously needs to be done to improve safety?

Please add NP if you do not wish for your comment to be in print.
