From Checkpoint, 5:23 pm on 1 May 2020

The West Coast's mayors are calling on the government to relax the lockdown rules in their region to save jobs and businesses.

There are no active cases of Covid-19 in the West Coast DHB area and there have been no new cases since April 5.

Despite that, the Prime Minister said there would be no regional moves out of lockdown level 3 at the moment, though she has not ruled it out in future.

Timothy Brown has more.
