The Prime Minister Christopher Luxon is touring cyclone and rain battered parts of Hawke's Bay.

On Friday morning he was in Wairoa to gauge progress of the town's recovery and find out what more is needed.

He toured several damaged areas including Tākitimu marae alongside mayor Craig Little who has said his council would go broke if it has to pay any more for road repairs, and desperately needs more government money.

Wairoa mayor Craig Little spoke to Charlotte Cook.
