Roof Top Standoff

A man has been arrested after holding a standoff with Humberside Police.

The man, 19, who has not yet been named, threatened emergency services with roof tiles.

At around 3pm yesterday (17/10/17) he made his way onto the roof of a building by Norfolk Street, Beverley Road.

The standoff continued overnight, finally coming to an end just after 11am today.

Road Closure

Beverley Road was partially closed in the interest of public safety, as the man was throwing large tiles from the roof of the building.

Although the standoff has ended the road remains closed until cleanup work can be completed.

The road will re-open as soon as it is safe for vehicles and pedestrians.
