At least 15 people were arrested and police initiated a one-way entry policy at Dunedin's infamous Hyde Street Keg Party last night.

The party, which ran from the early hours of yesterday through until about midnight, attracted thousands of people, most dressed in a theme.

A Facebook page for the party had more than 10,000 people intending to go, including people from Christchurch.

Yesterday afternoon police initiated a policy whereby those who left the street were not allowed back in.

People were also being moved off roofs. This year glass was banned at the event.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
