North Canterbury man killed in collision with fleeing driver

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

A man killed by a driver fleeing police left his Kaiapoi home before dawn to secure a park, then sleep in his car for two hours before starting work at Christchurch Hospital.

Kenneth McCaul was driving his Hyundai Grandeur when he was T-boned at the intersection of Glandovey and Idris roads in Fendalton, Christchurch, about 4am on Tuesday. He sustained critical injuries and was taken to hospital, but died a short time later.

Our thoughts are with the man's family and friends and with those of the others injured in this terrible incident.

Birds roosting on guttering

Christina from Rangiora

Hi has anyone got any tips on removing birds from nesting in guttering? Being woken up at 5.30am is frustrating & seems to have gone on for months?!. There are gutter spikes I could get placed. Does anyone know if these are quite pricey?
Any tips welcome.
Many Thanks

Couriers !

Linda from Rangiora

Wondering if this is the norm for the couriers. Small parcel from Auckland to Rangiora 7 days and still not here. Snail mail is faster. Emailed and asked where it is as the parcel finder hasn't been updated since it left Auckland. Emailed them no reply for 2 days and counting. Rang them and they said we will ring you back but didn't say this year ! Still no email, no phone call, no parcel. Sadly fastways need rebranding, maybe snailways lol
Are there any better couriers ? or is the normal.

Update.... They lost it. Sadly it's a $300 xmas gift. Hopefully they find it. Sender being a business is on to it and if not found by Friday will get a refund from them, and send another. Only hope they use another courier service.
