"All our passing traffic and our tourists – which I'd say was about 80 percent of our custom – stopped overnight. They're just not coming."

The recent Kaikōura earthquake has resulted in a dramatic downturn in business for Debbie Anderson of Two Rivers Cafe in Cheviot.

She tells Cosmo Kentish-Barnes her cafe is now relying on lovely locals and contractors.
