Jumper scare on M25
A mentally ill man threatened to throw himself in front of motorway traffic during Monday’s rush hour.
The 46-year-old stood on the bridge in Chequers Road, Noak Hill, threatening to jump into moving traffic on the M25 shortly before 6pm on Monday June 6.
Essex Police put in place a rolling roadblock to close the M25 both ways.
Officers spoke to the man and managed to persuade him to come down.
He was taken to Queen’s Hospital for a mental health assessment.
