Devonshire Road in North Shore is reopen following an accident earlier this evening.

The road was shut by police close to the Devonshire Arms pub, while paramedics could be seen tending to a casualty close to the junction with Claremont Road at around 7pm.

Bus services seven, eight, and nine, along with other traffic, were diverted away from the scene - before the road was cleared at approximately 7.25pm.

The Gazette has contacted the police for more information on the accident.

Devonshire Road has been busier in recent weeks, since the closure of Crossley's Bridge while it is replaced.

Several accidents, at least one serious, have also been reported there in the past three months.
