    Auckland's Manurewa High School cancells mayoral campaign event due to measles outbreak

    Auckland's Manurewa High School has cancelled a mayoral campaign event tomorrow night, because of the measles outbreak

    It was to be held at the school to give students an opportunity to hear from candidates.

    But, ten students from the school have now been confirmed to have measles.

    Board of Trustees chairman Stephen Smith says all non-school events have been postponed for health and safety reasons.

    In recent weeks the measles outbreak has reached epidemic levels, with the vast majority of new cases being notified in South Auckland.
