Police and partner agencies have now completed an inspection of a Bledisloe
Street property, to ensure there is no ongoing risk to the community
following the resolution of an incident at the property.
Cordons in the area have been reduced and residents are able to safely return
to their properties.
Anyone who requires assistance to return home is asked to contact Levin
Police.
Cordons will remain around the Bledisloe Street property and a scene guard
will be in place overnight.
Bledisloe Street residents can expect to see a continued police presence in
the street in the coming days, but we want to reassure residents that there
is no need for concern.
Police would like to once again thank all those impacted by this incident for
their support as we worked to achieve a peaceful resolution.
We know this incident has been very unsettling for residents, particularly
those evacuated from their homes. We encourage anyone who needs support as a
result of this incident to contact Victim Support on 0800 842 846.
We would like to acknowledge Horowhenua District Council, and our colleagues
from Fire and Emergency New Zealand, St Johns, and the EOD team at New
Zealand Defence Force, for their assistance during this incident.
