An apartment block in New Zealand has been stripped by burglars, who made off with everything they could get their hands on - including 32 kitchen sinks.

The gang posed as builders carrying out demolition work and were able to steal £250,000 worth of fittings from an abandoned housing estate in Kelston, Auckland.
