Police search and rescue were called to Milford Sound tonight after a climber was injured on Mitre Peak.

A police spokesman said they received the call at about 7pm, after the climber’s companion walked to a payphone at  Milford Sound and phoned emergency services.

The accident had happened earlier in the day, the spokesman said.

It is understood a helicopter had been dispatched to retrieve the climber last night.

The climber's injuries were not life-threatening, the spokesman said.

At 10pm police said the situation had been resolved, but would not give further details.
