M55 junction reopened after incident on bridge
Motorists were held up for an hour because of the incident, which was not caused by a road accident as initially believed but due to concerns over the safety and wellbeing of a man on the bridge at Marton Circle.
The police and an ambulance attended the scene.
Insp Mark Hughes, of Blackpool Police, said: "The situation has been successfully resolved.
"The gentleman is safe and well and traffic has returned to normal."
