Few ar­rests

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

It was one of the most thrilling games of cricket this coun­try’s ever seen and Satur­day’s World Cup match be­tween the Black Caps and Australia also had the po­lice leav­ing Eden Park with smiles on their faces. More than 40,000 fans turned up for the match with only one ar­rest and 21 peo­ple evicted. Auck­land City Po­lice In­spec­tor Peter Gibson says the event was a great demon­stra­tion of the world­class events that the city hosts. ‘‘Over­all the event ran smoothly and while there was some con­ges­tion ex­pe­ri­enced with mov­ing the crowd in and out of the sta­dium be­fore and af­ter the game, from a po­lice per­spec­tive it can be con­sid­ered a suc­cess.’’
