Watch: Tangi held for senior Black Power member Whenu 'Sarge' McKinnon

Video has been released of the tangi of a senior Black Power gang member who died earlier this month.

National president Whenu "Sarge" McKinnon was farewelled by hundreds in Rotorua, including members of rival gangs.

There were plenty of one-armed Black Power salutes, and a fierce haka.

In recent years Sarge has been in talks with Mongrel Mob leadership about paving a way forward, particularly in response to growing numbers of Australian gang members arriving in New Zealand.
