Far North road checkpoints get police support

From Checkpoint, 6:26 pm on 26 March 2020

Checkpoints in the Far North running testing stations and turning tourists away with no self-isolation plans have been scaled back with organisers saying they had achieved their desired effect.

Organiser and former MP Hone Harawira has been overwhelmed with the support from police, who he says offered their assistance on the condition that volunteers move to a safer spot on the road.
