Man in hospital after siege

Have your say

A MAN arrested by police after he sparked a 12-hour stand-off by pouring boiling water from his flat on to the street below has been admitted to hospital for a mental health assessment.

Officers were called to Brooklands Avenue, Fulwood, after reports that a man from the flat above Rhythm and Booze was pouring water into the street and hurling crockery.

Officers were called at 10.10am and arrested the man 12 hours later after a day of negotiations.
