As an award-winning investigative journalist, specialising in crime reporting, Blair Ensor has a lot of experience in dealing with complicated and tragic stories. But nothing could have prepared him for the events of March 15. The Stuff reporter was one of the first to the scene, having taken a Lime Scooter to the centre of Deans Ave as the Police and emergency services arrived.
In this episode of Friday Prayers, Blair talks to Rev Frank Ritchie about how the day unfolded for him and the processing that followed.
