An area of Longroyd Bridge was cordoned off last night due to ‘concerns for safety’ of a man.
Officers attended the canal tow path off Manchester Road near the Bridge Pub yesterday evening and located the man.
A woman who works nearby said: “There were two police cars and police were on the tow path. You couldn’t see what was happening but there was a police cordon. They were there for quite a while.”
Another woman who lives on the same street said: “There were loads of police - it was taped off.
“It happened on the canal.”
A police spokeswoman said: “Police were called yesterday evening to Manchester Road in Huddersfield for a concern for safety about a male.
“The male was located and detained by officers.”
