Police praise student behaviour

Police have praised the behaviour of students over the weekend, and say a change has showed up in arrest numbers.

With celebrations following Highlanders and Warriors games, there were 35 arrests on Friday and Saturday.

Police say they were mostly for disorder, and the figure is not unusual for a weekend.

But of those 35 arrests, only five were students.

Senior Sergeant Bruce Ross described the result as good to see.
