For the first time in nearly two weeks, Civil Defence in Kaikōura has agreed to allow people to drive themselves out of the quake-hit town. About 100 drivers have confirmed to Civil Defence they want to leave by road. But the plan depends on the weather and on the road being safe.

It's taller than a two-story house, weighs 3.5 tonnes and took more than 1200 hours to build. It's a Christmas tree and it's made of LEGO. The giant tree is made of more than 500,000 LEGO bricks, making it the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

There are around 80 species found of nudibranchs found in New Zealabd waters. They are molluscs, belonging to the gastropod family, along with snails, paua and limpets).  A nudibranch is also known as a sea slug, and they are essentially gastropods that have little or no shell (or lose it at early stages of development).

Today on New Zealand Live, one of the hardest working bands in land.  Well that's certainly true of it's leader who performs in excess of 230 gigs a year.  The band itself is more of a moveable feast in terms of it's players and their role in it.  There are two key members; Jess Shanks and Adam McGrath and they have literally played everywhere from Nashville to Timaru, but home is where the heart is, and their hearts are very much in Lyttleton.

3:05 Diving into the mystery bubbles
