According to Auckland Council the Presbyterian church hall in Mt Eden is not at imminent risk of collapse, unless there's a significant earthquake.

It has received independent expert advice that says the hall's not beyond being safely repaired.

Auckland Council's Regulatory Compliance Manager, Steve Pearce, says the council has engaged an additional engineering firm to carry out another structural engineering assessment. He talks to Guyon Espiner.
