DE­POT EVAC­U­ATED

Central Leader - - OUT & ABOUT -

Couri­erPost’s de­pot in the Auck­land sub­urb of Morn­ing­side was evac­u­ated on Mon­day morn­ing af­ter con­cerns over amys­tery pack­age. A Fire Ser­vice spokes­woman said the ser­vice was con­tacted about a cylin­dri­cal pack­age mak­ing "funny noises" at the fa­cil­ity, and that the ser­vice’s Haz­ardous Ma­te­ri­als Unit was dis­patched. An un­la­belled con­tainer of re­frig­er­ant - used in fridges and heat pumps - was at the bot­tom of the mys­tery. The con­tainer was leak­ing, so fire crews ven­ti­lated the build­ing.They had left the scene by 8:50am.
