Art has imitated life for Counties Manukau police.

Police Eagle helicopter crew were talking on camera about water safety when they were called to a real rescue on the Manukau Harbour.

The officers were starring in a video about dangers at sea ahead of Labour Weekend.

It took them a moment to realise the call about a kayaker in trouble was real- rather than a stitch up.

They stopped filming and rushed to the harbour after the alarm was raised about 3.20 pm on October 20.

Helicopter crew soon spotted the kayaker, who was plucked to safety by the Coastguard.

The kayaker was reported to be safe and well.

Hi Neighbours,

Auckland uni students have spoken out against on-campus exams this year as their overseas counterparts will be able to check notes while they will not be able to.

Those international and domestic students remaining in New Zealand will be completing their exams under supervised conditions. A university email obtained by Stuff showed that overseas students will also be given a 30 minute grace period, in case of any technical faults, with this time able to be used towards the final exam.

Do you think this is fair?

We need the law to protect us.

The vast majority of us have complied with the necessary restrictions and recommendations to keep covid-19 at bay. A few however think they know better and for whatever reason disregard the virus danger. They are putting themselves and others as well as the economy at more serious risk. It is these dissenters alone who won't comply with being asked and who fully justify, make necessary, that the rules become law. And the rules are so simple, the rewards huge. The government has so far, [as usual], been light handed with enforcement. It won't work. The law needs ENFORCING with heavy fines and far stricter oversight. Only then can we compare with the success story of Taiwan. The vast majority of decent New Zealand citizens would welcome, and understand, the need for law enforcement. It's time we got on with it. It is not right that a small minority are left to wreck the place beyond imagination. I feel for Dr Bloomfield who puts his heart and soul into his job but is so undermined by a few idiots.
