A man has been taken to hospital after jumping off a bridge onto the North Circular carriageway.
Police were called at 7:58am this morning to reports of a man in his 20s on the northbound carriageway of the North Circular near Ikea.
Officers stopped traffic to prevent the man from being hit by a car but he climbed a footbridge and jumped onto the road.
The road was closed between Brentfield Road and Great Central Way, with traffic stretching to Staples Corner as paramedics arrived.
The carriageway was reopened at about 10.25am.
A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We were called at 8:24am today to North Circular, Wembley to reports of an incident.
“We sent an incident response officer, an advanced paramedic and an ambulance crew at the scene.
“We treated a man at the scene and took him to major trauma centre as a priority.”
