Early yesterday morning, 110 police officers, dog handlers, fire safety officers, council staff, dog control officers and an electrical engineer gathered at police headquarters in Otahuhu for a final debriefing.
Just after 6.30am they left for Favona Rd in 45 police cars.
Intersections were closed to allow the huge convoy to arrive together. The police Eagle helicopter followed from above.
By midday, the power was shut down, effectively closing the caravan park.
