VIDEO: Residents block Beetham Highway

Parts of the Beetham highway and the priority bus route are currently blocked by rioting Beetham residents.

CNC3 understands that police are mobilizing resources and heading to the scene.

CNC3 has obtained footage of residents blocking the highway and throwing objects at passing vehicles.

We understand that action maybe retaliation for a police exercise in the area, during which 2 alleged gang leaders were taken into custody earlier this morning.

Army personnel are also being deployed.

Motorists are being advised to proceed with caution.

 We'll be keeping you updated on this development as it unfolds.
