NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 8/03/2017

Wellington District Court is in lockdown following the discovery of a suspicious package.

A threat had been phoned in against a building on Ballance Street at 8.30am on Thursday, a police spokeswoman said.

An officer at the scene told NZ Newswire a package had been delivered in the morning and sniffer dogs expected to sweep the area before cordons are lifted.

The entire block has been evacuated.
