Police have reopened roads after an incident on a bridge over the M40 was resolved.

Warwickshire Police said they were called just after 3pm yesterday (24 April) following reports of a man on a bridge near to junctions 15 and 16 of the M40.

Negotiators were able to bring the incident to a 'safe conclusion' by around 7pm and a man in his 30s has been detained under the Mental Health Act.

Chief Superintendent Alex Franklin-Smith from Warwickshire Police said:

The threat of harm to both the individual concerned and to vehicles driving on the M40 was so significant, there was no alternative but to close the motorway and for it to remain closed until the incident had run its course.
