10:30     Liquor ban to control middle-aged women pre-loading before Fleetwood Mac 

Ahead of tomorrow night's Fleetwood Mac concert in Dunedin, the city has introduced a temporary 24 hour liquor ban around the Forsyth Barr Stadium after police faced problems at the Six60 concert there earlier in the year.

Police say middle-aged women pre-loading with alcohol are causing issues at Dunedin concerts, so with 30-thousand punters expected to attend Fleetwood Mac tomorrow night, the message for those who pre-load and turn up drunk: "you won't get in".

Karyn speaks with Sue Paton from the Drug and Alcohol Practitioners Association Aotearoa-New Zealand about how New Zealanders are drinking.
