A man was arrested this afternoon after a rooftop drama in Preston.

Police attended an address in Fletcher Road at around 11am today to make an arrest.

A force spokesman said a 29-year-old man then climbed onto the roof of a house and refused to come down.

Police negotiators were brought in and the Lancashire fire and rescue service was also informed.

Part of Fletcher Road was cordoned off for a period until the man agreed to come down at around 1.15pm.

He was arrested and charged with burglary and criminal damage.
