A full emergency will be declared tonight at Marlborough Airport as part of an emergency exercise held twice a year.

Marlborough Airport manager Dean Heiford said the scenario for the exercise will be based on a smaller aircraft that has a vibration in an engine and has declared a full emergency with air traffic control.

Renwick and Blenheim fire brigades, Base Woodbourne emergency services, St John Ambulance and police will all be involved in the exercise.

The emergency is scheduled about 7.30pm and should be completed by 9pm.
