Hertfordshire police were called to an incident at Brookmans Park this morning following concern for the “welfare of a person on the tracks”.

At 5.39am police tweeted that they were dealing with an incident between Potters Bar and Brookmans Park.

A police helicopter had been circling over the southern end of Brookmans Park at about the same time as the reported incident.
