"Emergency services remain at the scene and a section of Sheffield Parkway has been closed in both directions while they continue their work," the SYP spokesperson said:

The SYP spokesperson continued: "It is shut between Derek Dooley Way and Prince of Wales Road and with emergency services at the scene, we would urge people to avoid the area."
