A teenager has died after falling from the Manadon flyover in Plymouth.

The 16-year-old boy fell from the flyover onto the A38 eastbound carriageway at around 10.30am on Monday 23 June.

Police and paramedics attended the scene.

The boy, from the Hartley area of Plymouth, was taken to Derriford Hospital where he died from his injuries. His next of kin are aware.

Highways assisted with the road closure, on the A38 eastbound directly underneath the Manadon flyover.

Traffic was diverted off the A38, onto the roundabout, and back onto the eastbound carriageway.

Both lanes of the A38 eastbound carriageway were re-opened by 1pm.

The death is not being treated as suspicious.
