THE Crediton Link Road at Wellparks Hill, from the Tesco roundabout at Wellparks to the Lords Meadow Industrial Estate in the town, was closed for more than an hour this afternoon (Tuesday, April 11) because of a police incident.
Police officers closed the Link Road following a report of a suspected suicide attempt at the footbridge which crosses the road.
An ambulance crew and police officers attended to talk to a woman at the scene.
A pair of trainers was removed from the road underneath the bridge by a police officer during the incident.
A woman was taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital by the ambulance.
The road was re-opened at 3.30pm.
