A WOMAN has been detained under the Mental Health Act after sitting on the barriers of a Wigan railway bridge.

Police were called to reports of a person on the edge of the bridge on Spencer Road, just north of Wigan North Western station.

Services through the station were delayed while police dealt with the woman who was taken from the bridge at around 9:30 this morning (Friday).

Network Rail confirmed that services have now resumed although residual delays are to be expected.
