From Morning Report, 8:46 am on 29 November 2023

An Armed Offenders Squad commander says the response of police tactical units to the Christchurch mosque attacks was unprecedented, and outstanding.

The inquest into the 2019 terror attacks that claimed the lives of 51 continues in front of deputy chief coroner Brigette Windley.

The commander, who cannot be named, was yesterday questioned extensively on how teams were deployed to the scenes at Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Islamic Centre.

Anna Sargent was in court.
