Doncaster town centre was gridlocked this morning for several hours after a young woman threatened to jump from a rooftop.

Trafford Way was closed to traffc and there was no vehicular access to the railway station from around 4am until around 10.30am when a police spokesman confirmed that “the 27-year-old woman on the Frenchgate Centre is now safe and is with specially-trained staff.”

A hooded figure could be seen perched on the edge of the Frenchgate Centre roof-top car park, just above the Sainsbury’s supermarket.
