Anyone have any idea what is going on at LHR? Just heard on the BBC Radio 2 Traffic Report the M4 is closed at the tunnel due to a police incident, and when it eventually reopens a contraflow will be in operation? Hope its nothing serious.

There is report of an incident in the tunnel on TfL traffic alert site. No details provided. They just say use other route. I guess they mean get onto the perimeter road, tear through the fence and leg it across the North runway and the maneuvering area to the CTA.

Quoting Airstud (Reply 8): How did this happen? How does a person just fall from the top of a tunnel?!?!?
Errrm, suicide.. If its not practically possible then the person intentionally fell. The police also reported the incident as 'not suspicious' either so that is usually Police jargon for suicide since its not considered an accident.
