    Jim Anderton has been buried on Waiheke Island.

    The former deputy prime minister, who died last weekend, was buried at Onetangi Cemetery on Saturday afternoon, near where his mother is interred.

    He had a public service in Christchurch, his adopted home city, on Thursday.

    He was remembered at the ceremony, attended by hundreds of mourners, as someone with a strong moral compass and sense of family, and by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern as a "towering figure" in New Zealand politics.
