LOCAL STATE OF EMERGENCY DECLARED IN CHRISTCHURCH AND SELWYN
The Mayors of Christchurch City and Selwyn District have made a joint decision to declare States of Emergency in their respective areas in relation to the Port Hills fires.
The declaration follows the evacuation this afternoon of 200-300 residents as the fire shifted closer to residential properties. It is no longer just a significant rural fire on the boundary of the city. It is now a city issue with suburbs being evacuated. Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel says a city response is also required to ensure the safety and welfare of residents.
“Christchurch needs a multi-agency response given the seriousness of the situation. We need to be able to draw on all the resources possible to give our residents confidence in the ongoing response.”
Selwyn District Mayor Sam Broughton says, “we acknowledge there has been a huge effort responding to the fire to date, however this declaration recognises the seriousness of the situation, and this will allow us to provide all the assistance necessary to respond to the unfolding situation.
“The district and the city must work together to manage the situation and address the different challenges the fire is creating in each area.”

I am sure a lot of you have seen the headlines. No excuses - I made a massive error of judgment and have let down my club, my fans and most importantly my family. I will have to now let the police/court process run its course and face the consequences. I am just glad no one was harmed. Sorry.

Walked away from Te Tii Marae at Waitangi today, after being told to move away while talking to the news media. Sad day after attending Waitangi since 13 years of age. We were outside the entrance which is not a private place, so we had every right to be there. This behaviour is an abomination. The media has been banned from going on to the marae this year, after they refused the demand to pay for the privilege of reporting the event for the public. It is a disgrace, counter-productive and reflects badly on this country’s history and the significance of Waitangi Day. This is not part of the tradition. It’s not good for Maori or this country. The groups involved need to sort it out.
