A man was talked down from a roof at a house in the Tulketh area during Tuesday afternoon.

Preston Police cordoned off Roebuck Street around 3.15pm after a man was seen climbing a house.

A police spokesman said they were in attendance after reports of a man climbing a drainpipe.

The man was talked down after 15 minutes and taken to Royal Preston Hospital due to a concern for welfare.

A bystander said two police vans and a number of fire engines were in the road during the incident.

The road has fully reopened.
