Christchurch : More weapons are seized out­side Christchurch courts than any­where else in New Zealand, yet there will be no se­cu­rity re­port on the city’s new jus­tice precinct. There were 39 weapons, mostly knives, seized out­side Christchurch courts last year, 45 per­cent of the na­tional to­tal. It was also three times as many as were seized in Auck­land, Waitakere and Manukau courts com­bined.

It’s an un­usual spike from the year be­fore, when Christchurch fea­tured 15 out of a to­tal 83 weapons seized.
