A 32-year old man is to appear in the Hastings District Court today (Friday) in relation to a break-in at Waipukurau’s Pure Sports & Leisure store early Thursday.

CCTV footage from the store showed a man entering the store just before 1am, breaking through the front door.

The man made off with clothes from a clothing rack.

Sergeant Neil Baker said the arrested man was from Napier.

He said Police will oppose bail when he appears in court.

Forecasters say north to northwest winds may approach severe gale in exposed places at times.

A number of early childhood centres and schools through the region have reported a significant increase in tummy bugs.

Medical Officer of Health, Dr Nicholas Jones, said samples tested so far have shown the bug to be Norovirus, which is a highly infectious virus tat spreads easily from person to person.

Dr Jones said symptoms appeared to be short-lived, many lasting just 24 hours.

He said most people experienced vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and fatigue.

Anyone with vomiting or diarrhoea should stay away from work or school for 48-hours after symptoms had cleared, and Dr Jones said people should also avoid public swimming pools for two weeks as they can remain infectious.
