Police have begun the long process of removing vehicles from the cordoned area in the Christchurch CBD.
The vehicles are being taken to a secure area until the owners can be identified and contacted.
If you have a vehicle inside the cordon you can register it with the Police Vehicle Recovery team by calling 03 363 7400.
Vehicle owners will be contacted by the Police Vehicle Recovery Team as soon as possible.
Police hope to have a vehicle recovery website available in the next day or two.
Police thank vehicle owners for their patience during this lengthy operation.
