A stretch of the M55 motorway at junction four, Blackpool East, was closed for an hour and a half on Sunday morning after a man threatened to jump from a bridge onto the carriageway.

Specialist police negotiators were called to the scene at 6.08am and managed to talk him down unharmed.

The motorway was reopened at 7.25am.
