Man spends night on roof of Milan's Duomo

Associated Press Associated Press 27/07/2016

An US tourist has spent a night locked on the spectacular rooftop of Milan's Gothic-inspired Duomo cathedral after being overlooked by security.

Police said the 23-year-old man told police he was in the bathroom when security made a final pass, and found himself locked inside the landmark cathedral when he went to leave on Monday night. He decided not create alarm and spent the night on the spired rooftop, reporting himself to authorities when they reopened on Tuesday.

Police said the tourist, whose passport showed he was born in Illinois, does not face any charges. Authorities declined to identify him.
