Police advise that a section of Devon Street in Aro Valley, Wellington, has been cordoned off this evening after a slip has come down.

One house has been evacuated as a precaution.

The road will be closed overnight between the Devon St/Essex St intersection, and the intersection of Landcross St and Fairlie Terrace.

This also includes pedestrian access to Victoria University via a walkway which runs off Devon Street.

Contractors are attending this evening and will further assess the site tomorrow.

People are asked to avoid the area if possible.
