The Government has confirmed "quite a number" of people in the latest outbreak are gang members. 

Public health expert Colin Tukuitonga told Mike Yardley it's now in everyone's interests to get as many gang members vaccinated as possible. 

"These are folk who don't necessarily believe or trust health officials and people who normally deal with them. We've got to try different ways to see if we can engage them."
