This story is over

A stretch of the M180 near Scunthorpe was temporarily closed this afternoon following reports of concern for the safety of a man.

The motorway was closed both ways at around 2pm between junction 3 for the M181 and junction 4 at Scawby for the A15 and A18.

Reports suggested a man was seen on one of the overhead bridges.

A full search of the area was completed and nothing of concern was reported.

The road has now fully reopened.
