Man dies in Humber Bridge fall
Police say there appear to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of man who is thought to have fallen from the Humber Bridge.

It is believed the 58-year-old man from Hull plunged from the east footway just after 1900 BST on Tuesday.

A helicopter from RAF Leconfield and the Humber Coastguard were scrambled to search for him and found his body in the water.

Humberside Police say they are treating the incident as a sudden death.
