Bus services were being diverted via Barbers Avenue, in both directions as a result of the incident, but they have now been restored to their usual routes, says Travel South Yorkshire.

South Yorkshire Police has been contacted but details have not yet been released by the force.

Temporary traffic lights are in place due to construction work on A61 London Road at Broadfield Road. The AA expects it will affect traffic in and out of Sheffield.
