    A west Auckland beach that's been off limits for swimming and other water activities for three years can be used again

    A west Auckland beach that's been off limits for swimming and other water activities for three years can be used again


    Laingholm Beach, near the entrance of the Manukau Harbour, was closed off because of water quality issues.

    Auckland Council Safeswim programme manager Nick Vigar says a local group's taken a lot of water samples from the beach and the warning can now be removed.
