Standoff at Dunedin campus ends

9:21 pm on 28 July 2009

A standoff between police negotiators and a person in his early 20s has been resolved in central Dunedin.

A section of Otago University campus on Cumberland Street was closed about 7.30pm on Tuesday.

Senior Sergeant Craig Brown says police received a phone call from an individual whose wellbeing gave them cause for concern.

Mr Brown says officers have spoken to the person, who has been taken to Dunedin Hospital, and Cumberland Street has reopened.
