Update on the fire at the SkyCity convention centre

From The Panel, 3:45 pm on 22 October 2019

A fire is still ablaze at the SkyCity convention centre in Auckland CBD. 

Black smoke was seen billowing across the city from the under-construction centre this afternoon, including from our windows here at RNZ.

Hundreds of people were evacuated, including construction workers, and police and fire are still on scene.

RNZ reporter Anneke Smith gives us an update from the latest emergency services press conference.
