Police have closed part of the River Cam today (April 24) and a footbridge in Cambridge over concern for a man's safety.
Officers received reports of a man threatening to jump into the Cam at 6.30am on the Riverside Bridge by Cheddar's Lane near Tesco.
A team of police officers are now sat on the bridge negotiating with the man.
A bystander, who did not wish to be named, said there were two fire engines at the scene, including specialist search and rescue personnel – who were carrying a yellow inflatable dingy towards the bridge.
A Cambridgeshire Constabulary spokesman said: "We received the calls at around 6.30am near Cheddar's Lane, Riverside Bridge. A man is threatening to jump. We don't know anything about him yet.
"Officers and the man are sat on the bridge in negotiation."
