Police are looking into a report of a gathering outside an Auckland funeral home.
From a picture provided to Newshub, it appears a number of gang members were congregating in separate groups on Hill St in Onehunga on Friday morning. Many of the patched individuals in the image are not wearing masks or physically distancing. Newshub was told there were at least 20 people gathering.
In a statement, a police spokesperson said: "Police have received a report this morning of a gathering of people on the street outside a funeral home in Onehunga where it's understood a tangi was taking place.
"Police are making follow up enquiries."
A video also shows a procession through Onehunga's streets with a number of people on motorbikes and in trucks escorting a hearse.
In Auckland, at the first stage of alert level 3, up to 10 people can gather outdoors, but they must be from only two households. Up to 10 people can attend a funeral, tangihanga or burial, with that not including staff or members of the clergy.
"Physical distancing and face coverings are recommended. Formal tangihanga involving large gatherings cannot take place at Alert Level 3."
