Parts of the A20 were closed earlier this morning amid reports a man was threatening to jump from a bridge.

Police were called to the A20 London-bound at Folkestone after a man was seen standing close to the carriageway.

It's believed he may have tried to cross the A-road, and a rolling road closure was set up from Dover up to the Round Hill Tunnels.
