Sumner roads open
All road blocks put up today in the Sumner area have been removed with the exception of the Main Road, which will be open shortly.
The road blocks were set up due to concerns over the stability of the rock face.
Police met with Sumner residents earlier this evening. The vast majority of them will be able to return home, while the emergency services and Civil Defence are speaking with a small number, believed to be about 20 households, about the situation with regard to their homes.
“It’s business as usual in Sumner however there will be a high profile, visible policing presence in the area throughout the night and into tomorrow,” says officer in charge Inspector Malcolm Johnston.
