Durban – Durban Central Police Station, which covers one of the biggest policing areas in KwaZulu-Natal, has been evacuated.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Thulani Zwane told News24 that smoke was seen emanating from a part of the building and resulted in the evacuation.

"According to information, it appears that someone put out their cigarette in a bin. It began smoking and the building was evacuated as a matter of precaution. However, we have all returned to the building now. There was no fire and no injuries to report."

Zwane assured that normal police services were still provided while the building was evacuated.

"Police were still on duty. The public still had access to 10111 where assistance would have been available."
