The man at the centre of a police incident on St George’s Bridge is now ‘safe and well’.

The road was closed off in both directions earlier this morning after officers were called to the scene following ‘concerns for a man’.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police said: “The road between St George’s roundabout and York Road roundabout has now been opened following an incident on the A19, St George’s Bridge in Doncaster this morning.

“At about 11am, police were called about concerns for a man on the bridge. Officers spoke to the man and he is now safe and well.”
