Police were called to a shopping centre in Leeds city centre after a group of intruders were seen on top the building’s glass roof.

The group, which appeared to consist of five young men or boys, were seen on top of Trinity Leeds at around 8.10pm on Saturday evening.

A picture was sent to the Yorkshire Evening Post which showed the intruders on top of the centre’s large glass dome above the Everyman Cinema.

A spokesman for Trinity Leeds said: “Trinity Leeds has 24 hour CCTV as well as strict security measures.

“Our security team spotted the intruders and the police were called to the scene immediately.”

It is not known how they gained access to the roof of the building, which has three floors.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “At 8.08pm on Saturday, police received a report of a number of youths on the roof of the Trinity shopping centre taking photos of each other.

Officers attended and the youths came down and were given suitable words of advice.

“No criminal offences were recorded.”
