Police were called to Quay Street shortly before 7.30pm after receiving reports of drinks being thrown off an apartment balcony near Lower Hobson Street.

A fight involving a number of people then broke out upon officers arriving, resulting in several people taken into custody, police said.

Some received medical treatment, although police reported no serious injuries.

We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
