An army truck that broke down in Paraparaumu has come off the side of the trailer intended to take it away.

Constable Ariki Vertongen said an army truck broke down about 2pm on State Highway 1 in Paraparaumu, opposite Boat City, and was being loaded onto a trailer and being replaced by another truck.

Loading the truck also appears to have caused a problem, with it coming off the side of the trailer.

There was no delay to traffic.
