Sean spoke with Dr Haydn Read about the iwi roadblocks they have been running out Opotiki way.

Sean had a caller yesterday tell us Te Whānau-ā-Apanui are stopping people at their community roadblocks and asking them to apply for ‘essential worker’ travel permits.

Dr Read confirmed this but really didn't have any satisfactory answers when pressed by Sean on the legality of doing that.
