Verse of The Day
“A ka mea a Meri, Ka whakanui toku wairua i te Ariki, E hari ana toku wairua ki te Atua, ki toku Kaiwhakaora; He nui hoki nga mahi a te Mea Kaha ki ahau; he tapu hoki tona ingoa.” (Luke 1:46-47, 49)

Human Interest - Quirky

Whangarei police are staying mum on why armed officers laid road spikes and stopped and checked vehicles leaving a rural road.

Armed police swooped on Ngunguru Ford Rd about lunchtime yesterday, stopping and searching vehicles leaving the road.

Road spikes were laid across the entrance to the dead-end road, presumably to stop any vehicles from speeding away.

About 30 minutes later police left without making any arrests.

Police spokeswoman Sarah Kennett would not comment on what police were doing at Ngunguru Ford Rd, saying it was because of "operational sensitivity".
