ChristChurch Cathedral today. Ready for demolition:
Today marks four years since a deadly earthquake struck Canterbury, killing 185 people.
The magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck the region on Tuesday, 22 February 2011. It was centred 10 kilometres south-east of the centre of Christchurch.
To commemorate the anniversary, families of people who died in the earthquake, those who were seriously injured and members of the emergency services will attend a service on the Archery Lawn today.
The service will include a Mihi Whakatau, various addresses, an act of remembrance by youth representatives of different faiths, wreath laying and reading of the names of those who perished in the earthquake.
After the service people may cast flowers into the Avon River.
