One person was killed and another injured when a tractor rolled on a Waikato farm this afternoon.

LATEST: Police northern communications Inspector Kerry Watson said there were two people involved in the incident.

Emergency services were called to 164 Findlay Rd, Maramarua at about 12.40pm and remain at the scene.

Watson would not reveal any identifying features of the deceased person until next of kin are informed.
