The M1 motorway was closed earlier this morning, in both directions between junctions 37 and 38, after a man threatened to jump from a bridge near Higham.

A number of roads in and around Higham were also closed.

Just after 9am the police confirmed that a man was threatening to jump off the motorway bridge near Higham and officers were on the scene trying to talk him down.

Dodworth Road was also closed at CostCutters due to an accident, leading to a build-up of traffic in and around the town centre.
