Coronavirus: Holidaymakers sneaking into beach towns under cover of darkness

From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 8 April 2020

A Whangamata man says out-of-towners have been using the cover of darkness during lockdown to sneak into the beachside resort for the Easter break.

Police are promising to be out in force this weekend to stop would-be holidaymakers and turn them around before they can reach their destination.

Permanent residents of holiday hotspots around the country are pleading with bach owners to stay at home.
