Threat forces Christchurch police shutdown

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 1/08/2016

A threat made against police in Christchurch forced the closure of stations across the city.

Police have not revealed the nature of the threat, which was made just before midday on Monday and resulted in all Christchurch stations closing as a precaution for about half an hour.

A 23-year-old man is currently in custody and all police stations have since re-opened.
