06:08 pm: Fireworks display postponed because of whale in harbour.
A Southern Right Whale has been in Wellington Harbour & has been making news. The city is abuzz with the novelty of the phenomenon. The whale is still hanging around, and looks like the scheduled fireworks display which is part of Matariki (the "Maori New Year") celebrations has been postponed.

The fireworks are unlikely to harm the whale, but there were concerns that they might cause it to behave unpredictably. And given there are likely to be people in the water trying to get a better view of the fireworks (and perhaps also a closer look at the whale), a postponement seems the sensible option.
