    Canterbury locals are helping police deal with a serious incident in Selwyn

    Canterbury locals are helping police deal with a serious incident in Selwyn


    Armed police have blocked off the Selwyn River Bridge in Glentunnel - with a silver bus parked in the middle.

    Local Richard Dawson says the man on the bus was extremely agitated - and threatening it was full of explosives.

    Dawson says he helped make the scene safe - before police arrived.

    He says he got the crowd off the bridge - and got a couple of truckers to block it off at each end.

    Motorists are urged to follow the direction of emergency staff.
