Is it time to declare a housing state of emergency in the Far North?

The team Reporter from Northern News

Hi neighbours - Ex-state rentals from Auckland are being bussed in to provide much-needed housing in Northland.

The "Whare Ora" housing scheme, run by trust Chief Executive Ricky Houghton, makes use of "recycled" homes, aiming to get whānau off the street. The waiting list for state housing has tripled since 2014, and 150 families and individuals are on the waiting list.

What are your thoughts? Is it time to declare a housing state of emergency in the Far North?

What do you think about a load of uncovered dead calves?

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

The Aucklander who saw the uncovered trailer said it was a "confronting sight - pretty gross". The driver did not appear to be breaking any laws but farming experts say the calves should've been covered for good taste. What do you think - is this just the reality of farming or should the public be protected from such sights?
