A major waste water pipe has burst in central Wellington, closing roads and disrupting morning traffic. The pipe burst at the intersection of Victoria Street and Mercer Street yesterday afternoon. People in the central city are being asked to only flush the toilet if it is "essential".
The central Wellington sewerage pipe that broke, closing central city streets, was more than 100 years old.
Sewage flowed out onto the road after a pipe ruptured at the intersection of Victoria and Mercer streets on Monday afternoon.
Wellington Water confirmed the failed pipe was installed around the year 1910.
Repairing it is expected to take two to three days.

This weeks SPCA pet is Jed.

"WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT ME
My ideal home would have a big garden for me to explore and potter around while supervised. I would suit a family that has had dogs before as I am a big boy with a bit of strength. I would love to go for walks with my new family and check out this wonderful country we live in. When I have nothing to do I have shown the ability to escape out of medium to high fencing so I need a plan to be contained during the day that doesn't involve being tied or tethered. Going to work with my new human companion would be great for me. I am not suited to a home with/next to cats and other small animals or livestock. If you are looking for a bigger dog that is pretty laid back then make an appointment to come and meet me."

A new study of 1000 people has found 40 per cent of participants would automatically assume someone coughing or sneezing near them might have Covid-19.

Amid new fears of a community case in Northland, hayfever season could cause more anxiety than ever.

Those with symptoms might be encouraged to be better safe than sorry and stay home, despite knowing it's likely caused by their allergies.

Have you experienced unnecessary days off work, or sideways looks on the bus, because of your asthma or allergies?
