Scaffolding collapses at luxury apartments

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Scaffolding has collapsed at a luxury apartment building in Takapuna overnight.

The scaffolding is understood to have fallen from a swimming pool near the base of The Sentinel tower between Huron St and Northcroft St.

As it fell, the scaffolding smashed glass awnings – leaving a pedestrian courtyard covered in smashed glass - and penetrated the roofs of nearby shops.

'We are so sad': Parents of missing French teen Eloi Rolland search for answers in NZ

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

French teen Eloi Rolland, who has been missing in Auckland since March 2020, told his family he wanted to bring them to New Zealand.

“We don’t know what’s happened,” Catherine said. “We realise he is perhaps in another place.”

But the couple remain hopeful that Eloi is alive and well and said they would always be there for him.
