Carillon Tower's heaviest bell on beam at risk of buckling

From Morning Report, 7:37 am on 3 July 2020

The Carillon Tower at the National War Memorial at Pukeahu in Wellington will remain closed to the public after a new detailed assessment confirmed it was quake prone.

It reveals a third part of the building is at risk in an earthquake prone and the largest bell of the twelve bells in the tower, the 12 and a half tonne 'Peace' bell, is on a beam at risk of buckling.

The tower has been closed to the public since February.

Phil Pennington has been looking through the report.
