  5. Police make rooftop arrests

    Humberside Police say they've made several arrests after people went onto roofs in Grimsby and Scunthorpe yesterday.

    A 20-year-old man and a 19-year-old man were arrested after an incident in Conway Square in Scunthorpe.

    Four people have been arrested in connection with an incident on South Parade in Grimsby.

    The force has urged the public to stay away during such incidents to avoid encouraging offenders.

    Quote Message: If they don’t have a crowd to play up to and people egging them on, they’re far more likely to come down sooner without hurting themselves or anyone else. This isn’t entertainment. And, if you think it’s funny to come along and egg them on or help them in anyway, you risk being arrested yourself." from Ch Supt Darren Downs Humberside Police
