Potentially dangerous chemical could be blown up

From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 12 July 2019

South Dunedin properties will be evacuated this morning as the Defence Force's bomb squad assesses a potentially dangerous chemical.

It may be blown up, as the owners of the building are concerned the chemical has become unstable.

It might also be able to be moved and be disposed elsewhere.
