Intruders refuse to leave roof of building in Old Market Street
TWO intruders got onto the roof of a building on Old Market Street this evening and refused to come down.
The pair were part of a larger group who had broken into what was believed to be a former shop.
Avon and Somerset police removed them, using trespass legislation, after the owner discovered locks had been broken and entry had been forced.
But police spokeswoman Claire Stanley said two people had managed to get back in, climb up onto the roof and were still refusing to come down when police left the incident at 6pm.

A force spokesman later explained officers knew who the offenders were but did not arrest them at the time as climbing up on the roof would not have been “proportionate” to the charges of criminal damage they faced.
