All commercial flights have been grounded across the country due to a radar fault.

Radio New Zealand have reported that the nationwide fault means flights currently up in the air can land but no planes are allowed to take off.

UPDATE:

Airways New Zealand has identified the fault which has caused a nationwide radar outage this afternoon.

The fault discovered shortly before 3pm meant no planes could take off.

Auckland Airport says they are now boarding planes again - starting with international flights.

That will be followed by domestic and then regional.
