There is an assurance from our Government this morning that ANZAC commemorations at Gallipoli are going ahead as planned.

Australia's government has cancelled the Lone Pine service, saying the site is is too hard for veterans and their families to get to.

But our Minister of Veterans Affairs Craig Foss said New Zealand won't be following suit and the service at Chunuk Bair is on.
