As a result of the operation by the Joint Services to contain the situation at the Georgetown Prison, several streets in the area have been cordoned off.
Citizens who do not live in the area are asked to avoid the area until further notice. Vehicular traffic should utilise other routes at this time. Persons should avoid Durban St, Norton St, Hadfield St, Camp St (between Brickdam and Norton), Bent St, Creen Street and George Street. (OPM Advisory)
