From Midday Report, 12:10 pm on 19 October 2022

Frustrated dairy and business owners have met with the police minister Chris Hipkins this morning, demanding more be done to stop ramraids and smash and grabs. There's been an increase in those crimes this year, after decades of falling youth offending rates. The businesses say it's costing them tens-of-thousands of dollars in security and repairs, and not enough is being done to protect them. Dairy owners representative Sunny Kaushal spoke with Mani Dunlop.
