CAPE TOWN - Metro Police say the situation in the Du Noon remains volatile this morning.

Protests have again erupted there.

The trouble started over the weekend after a group of people tried to occupy a piece of land near the N7.

The Metro Police's Wayne le Roux said, "At the moment, the situation is very volatile and we would just like to caution motorists travelling that route to contact us to get an update of what's happening. There are certain routes that are still closed at this stage. Metro Police and the South African Police Service have created a visible police presence."

Two MyCiTi bus stations were set alight during the unrest recently, causing more than R1,5 million in damages.
