All Auckland beaches black flagged

From Nights, 8:07 pm on 1 February 2023

Swimmers across the entire Auckland region are being advised not to get in the water - and if you look at the Safeswim map - it's a tight mass of black pins. Auckland council has placed every beach under a black Do Not Swim advisory - due to wastewater contamination and debris. Matt Williams, Chief executive of Surf Lifesaving Northern Region, joins Karyn on the show.
