Police are responding to a mass shooting at a mosque in the New Zealand city of Christchurch.

Radio Sport commentator Bryan Waddle, who is at the Hagley Oval, very close to the Al Noor mosque, is reporting that staff at the stadium have told them to remain where they are after "a new incident".

Police commissioner Mike Bush said all schools in the city had been placed in lockdown in response to "a serious ongoing firearms incident".
