Attributable to Inspector Dion Bennett, Acting Wellington District Commander:

Progress is slow but ongoing today in the scene examination of the fire at Loafers Lodge, Newtown.

Overnight weather has meant extra checks have been needed to ensure the safety of the building and areas where teams are working, and Police is working alongside Urban Search and Rescue to do this.

Meanwhile, the formal identification process of the victims recovered from the fire is moving swiftly.

Police will provide updates as appropriate.
