Night Talk: Mitch Harris opening comments, Monday 10th December 2018.

Tonight: Why does Grace Mullane's death feel so personal to Kiwis? Is New Zealand a safe country for visitors?

Vigils in Auckland and Wellington will be held in the coming days to honour the life of British backpacker Grace Millane, after her body was found in the Waitakere Ranges on Sunday.

White Ribbon Campaign Manager Rob McCann told Newshub it was "a natural thing" for people to want to express their grief for the 22-year-old who was killed while on her OE.

The organisation against men's violence towards women will host Wednesday's event from 6-7pm in St Patricks Square in Auckland CBD.

"We were approached by members of the community who wanted to recognise the life of Grace," Mr McCann said.

He explained that it is also a chance for Kiwis to show they are "totally opposed" to violence in our country.
