Harleyford Road incident: woman threatened to jump from building

Harleyford Road, between Oval and Vauxhall was closed by police between 11pm last night (21st March) and 1:30pm today (22nd March) as a female resident threatened to jump from the window ledge of a building in the vicinity.  After shouting at passerby for most of the night, the resident was eventually talked down to safety, and the road re-opened.  The incident caused traffic chaos throughout the vicinity of Kennington, Oval and Vauxhall until midday.

There was a rumour on Twitter earlier that the road had been closed due to a murder. Thankfully, that doesn't appear to have been the case, and further rumours should be put to rest.
