A drone has been seen flying above Hagley Park near one of the mosques at the centre of the Christchurch terror attacks.
Police ask that anyone operating a drone cease this immediately.
“We are responding to try to identify the person responsible and have the drone brought down,” police said in a statement on Sunday morning.
Drone activity has the potential to stop all helicopters responding to the Christchurch terror attack, the statement said.
