A window fell from a Customhouse Quay high-rise and smashed on the pavement below this afternoon.

Police and fire crews were called to the Todd Building in central Wellington about 4.30pm today after reports a pane of glass had fallen from the west side of the building.

Shift manager Craig Dally said fire crews simply cleaned up the glass and no-one was injured.

Meanwhile, a motorcycle and a car collided near the intersection of Murphy St and Pipitea St about 5pm.

An ambulance spokeswoman said the motorcyclist, a man in his mid-30s, was treated for minor injuries on the scene but was not taken to hospital.

A police spokesman said the crash had not affected rush-hour traffic.

How do you feel about the royals' visit after week one?

Loving it, wish they'd stay for another week.

It's been awesome, but time to wrap up.

Enjoyment and apathy in equal parts.

Caught snippets - and that was enough for me.

Never cared, never will.
