New Zealand police have asked people to avoid the area

New Zealand police said that they were responding to an incident in Christchurch, where 50 people were killed in attacks by a lone gunman on two mosques in March.

They made this statement on Tuesday.

New Zealand police have asked people to avoid the area.

Police declined to comment on the nature of the incident in the Phillipstown area of the city on New Zealand's South Island and gave no further details.

A spokesman for the St John Ambulance service said an ambulance was on standby at the scene at the request of police but had not treated any patients.

The New Zealand Herald said police were called due to threats of an explosive device and residents were evacuated from nearby homes.

A police spokeswoman declined to comment on the Herald report of a potential bomb threat.
