08:37, May 24 2012

A two-seater couch was blocking a fast lane on the Wellington Motorway this evening.

The couch was on the road  in the northbound fast lane of State Highway One near the Tinakori Rd off ramp.

Police had to put diversions in place after they were alerted to the couch blocking a lane of traffic around 7.30pm.

Inspector Paul Jermy said a tow truck had been called to remove the couch, which was right near the median barrier.

Motorists were advised to take care in the area while police diverted traffic around the couch.

The couch is now off the road.
