Police have been called to reports of a person in distress on a bridge above Potteries Way.
Officers were called earlier this afternoon after members of the public spotted the person on Town Road above the dual carriageway in Hanley.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing police negotiating with the person, before officers were able to reach them and bring the situation to a safe conclusion shortly before 5pm.
Traffic was stopped on both roads while police dealt with the incident.
StokeonTrent Live has approached Staffordshire Police for a comment.
