From Midday Report, 12:17 pm on 22 January 2024

Some Muriwai residents say it's the wild west when it comes to vehicles hooning along the local beach, with no clear rules or controls.

One person died and another two were injured when a vehicle rolled on the beach northwest of Auckland on Sunday afternoon.

In 2015 four people were killed in a similar accident.

Co-chair of the Muriwai Community Association Clare Bradley spoke to Charlotte Cook.
