NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 4/04/2017

Slips on Auckland's North Shore have led authorities to evacuate waterfront homes.

Cliffs, trees, gardens and fences at the rear of three properties on Torbay's Sharon Road have slipped into the sea, the Fire Service says.

The slip was 10m from one house, it said in a series of tweets on Wednesday morning.

It was continuing and a danger to those below.

Auckland's Civil Defence confirmed Waiake Beach, between Browns and Waiake Bays, was closed while authorities investigated the slipping.
