Man in aqueduct jump drama

A MAN is threatening to jump off the Lune Aqueduct in an ongoing incident in Lancaster.

A police negotiator has joined fire crews and the coastguard following reports from a member of the public at 9am this morning, Tuesday, that a man is on the Halton Road side of the 61ft high structure and is threatening to jump.

Two fire crews from Lancaster attended the scene with their sirens off and are assisting the police who are trying to coax the man down.
