HIGH Peak motorists faced travel chaos yesterday afternoon as the A6 bypass was closed by police.

Officers also closed the A624 in both directions after a 21-year-old man from Chapel-en-le-Frith climbed onto a bridge over the A624 and threatened to jump off.

The roads were closed shortly after 3pm and the man was safely brought down from the bridge at around 6.15pm, when police re-opened the routes. He was taken to Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport for treatment.
