(Waatea News) A Maori living at the centre of Christchurch’s latest 5.1 aftershock says residents have little choice than to try to carry on as normal.

The aftershock struck at 9:47 last night about 10 kilometres below 145 Shortland St in Aranui, which runs alongside Nga Hau e Wha marae.

Josh Anderson, who lives at number 140, says it’s lucky that most of his neighbours and family left the suburb after February’s major quake.

He says his house has just been deemed liveable by Earthquake Commission, so despite a jumpy night life returns to normal.
