A geotechnical engineer will examine a house in Picton which has been hit by a slip following heavy rain.

The Marlborough District Council says the house was evacuated as a precaution on Thursday afternoon.

The council says the town's sewerage system has been overwhelmed by 24 hours of rain and raw sewage is running into the harbour.
