Wellington and Porirua District Courts have been evacuated because of what RNZ understands is a bomb threat.

Police said people had been asked to leave the buildings as a precaution following a call at about 8.30am.

About 100 people waited outside the Wellington Court and were allowed back in at about 10am.
