Man arrested after roof incident in Llangollen

A 32-year-old local man has been arrested and taken to hospital after spending two hours on a roof in Denbighshire.

Police negotiators were called to the scene in Regent Street, Llangollen, after concerns were raised when the man was spotted on top of a building.

The road was cordoned off to protect the public as slates were being thrown off the roof, said police.

The alarm was raised at 15:45 BST and the man came down at 17:50.

A police spokesman said a man was arrested and has been transferred to hospital to be medically assessed before questioning.
