A rahui put in place two days after three men were swept to sea off Paritutu has been lifted.

Ngati Te Whiti hapu placed the rahui from Herekawe Stream at Back Beach to Waiwhakaiho on August 10.

At the time the rahui started hapu chairman Trent Martin asked that recreational activities, picking shellfish and fishing other than commercial fishing be refrained from until the missing men were found.

Yesterday Mr Martin said kaumatua had lifted the rahui, which comes a day after all police and private searches have been called off.
