Sheffield Parkway was closed this afternoon in both directions after a man fell from a footbridge earlier this afternoon and suffered fatal injuries.

South Yorkshire Police were called to the scene, close to the Parkway wholesale market, at around 3.05pm today.

A man who has not yet been officially identified, but is thought to be in his 50s, had fallen from a footbridge crossing the dual carriageway and sustained fatal injuries.

There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances.
