Two people have died in a crash in Clendon Park, Counties Manukau early this morning.

Police were called to the single-vehicle crash at the intersection of Weymouth Road and Palmers Road at 12.30am today.

The road is closed and motorists are asked to avoid the area.

Another person has died following a single-car crash near Mangawhai, in Northland.

Emergency services were alerted to the crash on Devich Rd at around 11.35pm last night.

The road was closed for a period as contractors repaired power lines that had come down but was reopened at about 5am today, police say.

Enquiries into the circumstances of the crash are continuing.
