The Independent Police Authority has found the police were not justified in carrying out a pursuit in Christchurch, and said it should have been abandoned. The crash killed 64-year-old Kaiapoi man Kenneth McCaul, and the driver being pursued was 17 at the time.

Children's Commissioner Judge Andrew Becroft talks with Karyn about why the police must stop pursuing young drivers. And why Covid-19 is a reason for New Zealanders to do more for the country's children, not less.
