Trains on the Hutt Valley line have been delayed this evening after a passenger required CPR.

Wellington Free Ambulance medical staff boarded a northbound Tranz-Metro train at Kaiwharawhara Station tonight.

A Kaiwharawhara resident said the passenger was treated at the scene and removed from the train.

A Tranz-Metro spokesman said services were now running about 25 minutes late on the northbound line out of Wellington "due to the medical emergency."

A Wellington Free Ambulance spokeswoman said the person was still receiving CPR treatment at Kaiwharawhara.
