There have been tailbacks on John Adams Way this morning (Wednesday) after an ‘elderly gentleman’ suffered a medical episode behind the wheel.

Lincolnshire Police confirmed the details of the incident which resulted in one lane of the road at the Haven Bridge crossing being closed while emergency services attended to the man.

A Lincolnshire County Council spokesman said that the roadworks which were due to close the lane as normal at 9.30am were being delayed by half an hour and the lane was being reopened temporarily to allow the back-up of traffic to ease.

The man was taken to hospital and no further information about his current condition is known at this time.
