I have just driven through woodchurch on the M53 and saw a woman on the wrong side of the railings on the bridge who appers to be threatening to jump off. There where a couple women on the bridge who looked like they where trying to coax her down. Expect big traffic delays around the area any time now.

I think and hope its just a cry for help as she was over the hard shoulder on the south bound carridgeway rather than one of the busy lanes. Several motorists had pulled over and looked like they where on the phone to the police.

Regardless if she jumps or not and I hope she comes to her sense and won't there will be loads of traffic there as woodchurch road has been dig up for a resurface so down to 1 lane each way was already backing up about 20 mins ago

the motorway cleared as i came off at woodchurch at 5:15pm, no sign off police or bodies or anything,luckily traffic was stood still from moreton spur when i got on the motorway but was literally stood still for five minutes.so i am presuming that she got down.

Excellent. It looks like it turned out well in the end. The last time someone jumped off there she fell on the road and was run over by the bloke that lives opposite me.

Hope he hadn't been drinking at all, or it would have been his fault! (some on here might say...)

update today on Mersey Magazine headlines: M53 CLOSED AFTER WOMAN THREATENS TO JUMP OFF BRIDGE
Published August 2, 2011 | By Editor
The M53 motorway was closed for a short time last night as police talked down a woman who was threatening to jump off an overhead bridge
Police were called at round 5pm last night to the bridge at Junction 3 of the motorway as the distressed woman threatened to jump but officers were successful in their efforts to dissuade her and she allowed herself to be escorted to Arrowe Park Hospital where she is under observation this morning.
