Auckland's mayor has labelled party-goers who breached lockdown "bloody idiots".  

Footage from the massive party at a North Shore property on Saturday night went viral on social media yesterday.  

Under Auckland's Level Three rules, only two households are allowed to meet outdoors - with a limit of 10 people.  

Phil Goff says these people should have thought about their families and the wider community.  

"It's just selfish and irresponsible to have an event like that, knowing it's breaking the rules when everybody else is making a sacrifice so we can get back to normal and have a decent Christmas together."
