Officers have now resolved the issue and diversions are being lifted in the area.
“Police would like to acknowledge the public’s cooperation and understanding while we responded to the incident this morning, " a police spokesperson said.

However, motorists can still expect delays for the next 30 minutes or so due to the backup of traffic.
