Update: The police incident at the Blue Bridge in York is now over.
We first reported that the bridge was closed at 9.10pm on Wednesday (7 December).
But the bridge is now open again, with cyclists and pedestrians free to pass both ways.
The northern entrance to the Blue Bridge from the path close to where the rivers Foss and Ouse converge was previously sealed off with a double row of tape.
Two police officers were guarding the entrance and turning back pedestrians.
They were being advised to cut through St George’s Field Car Park and continue their journey via Tower Street.
Meanwhile the entrance to the bridge was also sealed off from the back entrance to the Novotel Hotel and via New Walk.
Another police officer was guarding this entrance.
Officers weren’t able to say what happened, but the bridge appears to have been treated as a crime scene.
More as we get it.
