early on Wednesday about 1am I noticed a woman in our street entering the houses and looking around etc. watched her for about 10 minutes she went into several properties, I phoned the police explained what was happening they were great took all the details and the description of the person and by the time we had finished our conversation after about 10 minutes watching and monitoring the lady whilst I was talking to the police operator the police car arrived at the end of our street and took it from there, I felt that they took my complaint seriously and acted as quickly as they could, I live in Brookhaven Woolston and the street we live in is not on the way to anywhere so the person was not there for anything else than no good. Luckily I am a late nighter usually about midnight -1am before I go to bed, if I had not witnessed this person who knows what might have happened.
It is the time of year that these people go out looking for opportunities, we need to make sure our homes are secure, locked gates, windows doors sheds etc and ensure there is nothing lying around that would tempt them to enter you property.

Foodstuffs is recalling all batches, dates and flavours of its Pams brand Dairy Dessert - the 1.65 litre. This is due to the possibility of the plastic container breaking and plastic pieces entering the product. This could cause injuries if consumed.
The product is sold nationwide in Pak’n Save, New World, Four Square, Gilmours and Trents. This does not affect any other Pams brand products. Find out more here.
Christchurch's roofed 25,000-seat stadium could be ready within five years but the pressure is now on to get it planned and built right.
The city council's long-awaited investment case says a 25,000 seat mostly clear-roofed facility is the best fit for the city, and could be built within the budgeted $473 million, including running costs. Temporary seating was not included but could be added later.
The chosen option would cost $472.7m to build and $485.3m to run over 25 years, of which $343m would be funded by stadium income, with an annual $4.2m council top-up.
