    Police will continue to have an active presence in Levin this weekend

    Police will continue to have an active presence in Levin this weekend


    Cordons in the area have been reduced and residents are able to return to their homes, after a standoff with a man finally ended last night.

    Police had been negotiating with him since Thursday after he barricaded himself inside a property.

    A fire then broke out, and he was eventually taken to hospital with moderate injuries.

    A scene guard will remain in place at Bledisloe Street as investigations continue throughout the weekend.
