A man climbed onto the roof of his house in Leeds after refusing to come out when police called to investigate an early hours domestic dispute.

Officers were called to Belvedere Mount, Beeston, at 4.50am today following concerns about a commotion coming from a terraced property.

There was also a report of a car having been damaged.

The area was cordoned off while enquiries were carried out.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Officers attended and spoke to a man at the address who refused to leave and climbed onto the roof before eventually going back inside.

“An operation was put in place to safely remove the man and at 7.55am officers forced entry to the property and arrested a 30-year-old man on suspicion of affray and criminal damage. He is currently in custody.”
