RNZ report that emergency response staff are responding to what appears to be a large diesel spill in the lower reaches of the Whanganui River.

The spill was reported to the Whanganui Manawatu regional council this morning.

Emergency management manager Ian Lowe said the spill was affecting a large area of water between the river mouth and the boat ramp.
