POLICE had to seal off a busy Sheffield road this morning when a man threatened to jump from a city tower block.

Police closed Winter Street, Netherthorpe, from the Star and Garter pub to the Brookhill roundabout at around 9am today.

The incident caused traffic hold-ups on the busy route to the city centre.

Five police cars, the force helicopter and an ambulance were called to the scene.

Eyewitnesses said the man, who went back inside the flat unharmed at around 9.45am, was ‘shouting and screaming’.
