A man has finally come down from the roof of a hotel in Blackpool town centre after a stand-off lasting more than five hours.

Police, fire and ambulance crews were called after a man in his 20s was seen walking across the roof of several hotels in Hull Road.

The man had been on the buildings since 6.30am this morning and was believed to be protesting to police.

He was finally persuaded to come down around noon, with firefighters using an aerial ladder platform.
