Another media blackout

Growing up in England I was used to media blackouts. the only way you
would know that Euston station had been closed because of a threat would be
if you were there. However, a major gas leak at Wellington Railway Station
is something I would expect the media to have picked up on fairly quickly,
yet there is nothing. Go and look at
http://news.google.co.nz/news?hl=en&edition=nz&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=wellington+gas&scoring=d and see if anything has changed yet.
Just after 8, the train I was on stopped at a station and we were told of a
major gas leak at Wellington station, and it could be some time before we
were moving again. All up the Hutt Valley line and the Kaput Coast line the
trains were backed up and eventually moved and cleared the backlog.
So why isn't there anything on the local newswires, when everyone knows
about it and I don't see any reason for a blackout. Or am I missing
something here?

Update: I was told there was an article on the NZ Herald (Auckland paper) website, but I couldn't find it.
