Roof sacrificed, Convention Centre still burns

From Morning Report, 7:10 am on 23 October 2019

The Sky City Convention centre is still burning this morning with flames still visible and black smoke billowing from the building and across the city. Auckland's mayor Phil Goff says the smoke is making things very unpleasant in the central city. People nearby are asked to stay out of the smoke, close windows and doors, and turn off air conditioning. Corin speaks to RNZ reporter Amy Williams.
