Eyewitnesses said activity was focused on the area near to the old water tower at the junction with Queen Mary’s Road.

Bus operator First said that Central Drive in Rossington was also closed.

A spokesman described the incident in Central Drive as a road accident and that services were being diverted as a result of the ongoing emergency situation.

“Service 205 diverted via: King George’s Road, Radburn Road, Gattison Lane, Clay Flat Lane and Strip Road in both directions.
