Grantham High Street closed off as man threatens to jump from roof

Have your say

Police cordoned off part of the High Street on Saturday night when a man threatened to jump off a roof.

Police were called to the Atrium at 9.30pm after reports of a man shouting and threatening to jump off the roof. He was walking along the roofs of buildings along the street and at one point was on the roof of the Yorkshire Bank.

A police negotiator was sent to talk to the man and he later came down. The High Street was reopened at about 10pm.

There is no confirmation of an arrest.
