Update on roof top standoff

Hull: The man has come down from the roof and has been arrested

18 Oct 2017

We have arrested a 19 year-old Hull man following an incident at the junction of Norfolk Street and Beverley Road in Hull.

The man took to the roof of a building shortly before 3pm yesterday.  It was necessary to close a section of Beverley Road for the safety of the public, the man and the emergency services dealing with the situation.

The carriageway is currently being cleared of debris and as soon as it is safe to do so we will reopen Beverley Road.

The road closures are necessary to ensure the safety of everyone in the area and we would like to thank the local community for their patience.
