Police have arrested two Far North men aged 33 and 19 years in relation to this incident. They both face a joint charge of assault and will be appearing in the Kaikohe District Court later today. As a result of any incident it is normal police procedure to debrief police actions, and this has now been done in relation to this particular incident. The police action was quick and decisive in immediately removing both men from the scene to prevent any potential further escalation. I am comfortable with the police security arrangements for the Prime Minister and other VIPs during the course of the Waitangi celebrations.
