    Papatoetoe residents feel they've hit a brick wall, trying to get tornado repairs done during lockdown

    Ben says fixes couldn't start on his roof, which still isn't secure, until a few days before Alert Level Four because of a shortage of builders and insurance processes.

    Under the Covid-19 health order, MBIE says building and construction can go ahead during lockdown to address immediate risks to health and safety.
