Inaction blamed for North Shore landslip

From Morning Report, 8:45 am on 10 October 2017

A landslip on Auckland's North Shore has a local business complaining about a lack of council action. Part of the Rawene car park in Birkenhead collapsed down a bank because of a landslip on Sunday night, and locals say the area is growing.

Steve Simms from Birkenhead Brewing Company, who relies on the carpark for his business, tells us the council has ignored concerns that nearby building work had destabilised the land.
