No details have been released on what the incident involves

Police have closed multiple roads and stopped tram services in Nottingham after a “major incident”.

It is not clear what the incident is.

Nottinghamshire Police said in a statement Tuesday morning that officers and other emergency services are currently in attendance at several locations, including the Maid Marian Way junction of Upper Parliament Street.

The Nottingham Express Transit (NET) tram network also said it has suspended all services due to “major police incidents around the city and suburbs”.

Other roads cordoned off include Ilkeston Road, Milton Street, Maples Street, and Woodborough Road, from the junction with Magdala Road into the city.

A statement from the police said: “There are multiple road closures in place throughout the city while the incident is being investigated.

“We are asking the public and motorists to please avoid the following areas and plan alternate routes.”

Twitter user Robbie Paul-Stone wrote this morning that someone was “being treated on the side of the road”. “I didn’t see any cars. It’s also closed by Theatre Royal but couldn’t see anything (that was about 7.15am).”
