The owner of a quake-damaged building in Christchurch is planning to lay a complaint to the police about a group entering the building to take photographs.
Members of the group recently caused controversy after they went inside the damaged Christ Church Cathedral and published photos on their website.
This time they have entered the Peterborough heritage building, on the corner of Peterborough and Montreal streets.
The building owner, Ceres, bought it in 2012 with plans to restore it.
Its spokesperson, David Lynch, said it was never contacted by the group and the building was locked when members went in to take the photos.
"The building was very secure, beyond the security fencing the building was locked and they are most concerned that someone has clearly forced entry, the matter is trespassing and it is certainly something that I think our client will be taking up with the police."
