Watch your children: Tudravu

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Update:4:48PM THIS is not the time for sight-seeing, police chief operations officer ACP Rusiate Tudravu said as he urged parents and guardians in the Western Division to keep a close watch on the movements of children.

"Children should be kept well away from flooded areas and must refrain from playing near drains," he said.

"We have also noticed some children venturing out with others near rivers to watch the rising river level and this is a great concern.

"This is not the time for sightseeing and people must not underestimate the power of nature."

Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki issued a directive for all town centres in the West to be shut down and movement restricted rom 6pm to 6am.
