Scaffolding collapses at luxury apartments

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Scaffolding has collapsed at a luxury apartment building in Takapuna overnight.

The scaffolding is understood to have fallen from a swimming pool near the base of The Sentinel tower between Huron St and Northcroft St.

As it fell, the scaffolding smashed glass awnings – leaving a pedestrian courtyard covered in smashed glass - and penetrated the roofs of nearby shops.
