Police say the man charged with murder in relation to the Christchurch terror attacks will face further charges.

The man, 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant, has appeared in the Christchurch District Court this morning.

He did not seek name suppression and has been remanded in custody.

Police said while the man is currently facing only one charge, further charges will be laid.

The court is closed to the public during the appearance due to the heightened security risk.

A large media presence is at the court.
