Controlled explosion of suspicious item

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 29/09/2016

Defence Force personnel have carried out a small controlled explosion on a suitcase left beside a rubbish bin in central Auckland.

Police had cordoned off the area around the corner of Quay St and Gore St, and closed nearby roads earlier on Thursday after an "item of concern" was found.

They say they are continuing their investigations at the scene and motorists should expect some ongoing disruption.
