WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13: There has been a reported serious collision on Harbour Road in Paget near the junction with Chapel Road. There are not many details at this time, however as a result traffic diversions are in place.

Motorists leaving the City of Hamilton are encouraged to avoid using Harbour Road and should instead use South Road/Middle Road. However they are being allowed to travel along Harbour Road until Chapel Road, where they are being diverted on to Middle Road.

Motorists coming from the west end of the island can travel along Harbour Road, but they will be diverted prior to reaching the scene – most likely at Manse Road.

At this time it appears that one person has been injured. The injured individual, believed to be an auxiliary cycle rider, has apparently already been taken from the scene to the hospital for treatment.

Police will update with more information as they are able.
