Police officers reminded those present of the rules under alert level 3 and all were compliant and moved on.

However, police now understand some groups are gathering in other locations in West Auckland.

"Police will be monitoring this situation and will be responding to any reports of gatherings.

"As part of this, members of the public are asked to report any instances of gatherings or traffic offending complaints to police to be investigated."
