WATCH: Story cuts through 'uncuttable' ankle bracelets

Corrections was left red-faced after Story once again demonstrated how easy it was to cut through the new "uncuttable" home detention anklets -- and all it took was a pair of scissors.

The department introduced the new electronic monitoring bracelets on Wednesday, which Corrections Minister Judith Collins called "almost impossible" to remove without "taking off your leg".

But when put to the test by Story, our strong cameraman, Billy Weepu, made it look quite easy.

While Ms Collins said the new ones were unlikely to be able to be cut off without the help of a chainsaw, all it took was a few snips.
