Vic police negotiate with man on roof

AAP logoAAP 8/01/2017

Trams were stopped and police negotiators brought in after a man scaled a roof in Melbourne and stood precariously atop a decorative parapet.

The man climbed onto the roof in Footscray early on Monday and remained there until just after 7am when he was talked down and taken away by police.

Buses replaced trams on Route 82 between Highpoint Shopping Centre and the Footscray terminus between 5.30am and 7am but normal service has now resumed, a Yarra Trams spokesman told AAP.
