Footage has emerged from inside Christchurch's Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament following the two strong aftershocks on Monday.

An iPad AR Parrot drone, controlled by the iPad's touchscreen, was flown inside the cathedral to take the images.

The pictures show the main body of the church to be relatively intact, but there is a lot of rubble in the sanctuary near the cathedral's altar.

AR Parrot Drones are quadricopters usually used as part of an augmented reality game called AR Pursuit. Players can control drones in mid-air which appear to shoot eachother when viewed on screen.
