1 min read

State Highway 1 south of Blenheim is now closed as a result of slips on the road.

The closure is from Weld Pass to just north of Kaikoura.

Police have received reports of damage to houses in the Seddon area, but to date there have been no reports of injuries.

Police advise motorists to take extreme care on the roads, particularly around bridges and overpasses which may have moved.
