A number of police cars raced to the scene and a number of officers were seen running to erect barriers and block the bridge off to motorists. Details about the incident are still coming in but several eyewitnesses have said that a woman appears to have sustained serious injuries after she was in collision with a vehicle.

There have been reports of a motorbike and pedal cycle involved.

Video taken by a reader at the scene shows the air ambulance on the carriageway while other pictures show the helicopter above the blocked carriageways.

It is understood cars heading into Doncaster town centre are being diverted along the A19 in Bentley. Motorists in the Bentley, Sprotbrough and Scawsby and Scawthorpe areas are facing severe delays as traffic builds up.
