There’s still no word on when Defence Force aircraft will be sent to retrieve tourists stuck in New Caledonia. 

Commercial flights remain cancelled due to the unrest in Noumea; 231 Kiwis are registered as being there.

Collins said “Stay in your own home, don’t go out unnecessarily and understand that help is coming.”
