A person is reported to have been injured in what onlookers describe as a climbing incident in Mount Maunganui.

Earlier tonight, emergency services were called to the track on the north side of Mauao.

A SunLive reader emailed in saying there was someone down the bank below the track, "apparently injured".

He says he saw it when he was climbing the Mount.

"There was a climbing rope above them so it looked like a climbing accident - belaying failure or something. 

"A number of people including first responder were there so I didn't stop.

"Back at the surf club there were all three emergency services in attendance in some numbers and another vehicle was going up as I came down."

SunLive is working on getting more information and will provide an update when we can.
