From Midday Report, 12:42 pm on 4 December 2023

The families of the victims of the CTV building collapse in Christchurch have told an engineering disciplinary hearing they've been waiting 12 years for accountability.

The building collapsed in the February 2011 earthquake killing 115 people.

It was designed by Dr Alan Reay's firm - Reay was criticised by the Earthquake Royal Commission for handing sole responsibility of it to an inexperienced employee.

Reay has tried to stop the disciplinary process going ahead but it got underway in Christchurch today.
