Family Of Murdered Liam Hunt Say They've Been Ripped Apart By His Death
Man Talked Down From Roof
Police have thanked people for their patience after a twelve-hour stand off in Northampton between a man and armed police, which led to roads being closed.
Part of Northampton's Kettering Road had to be closed off because of the stand-off in the nearby Cowper Street.
That began at around 6pm on Saturday 25 February 2012. The man was finally persuaded to come down at around 4am on Sunday 26 February.
Northamptonshire Police have told Heart the stand-off began when they went to speak to a man wanted by Greater Manchester Police. Firearms officers, police dogs, police negotiators and the fire and ambulance services were all involved in the subsequent operation because of the potential risk to the man on the roof, and other people nearby.
A 21 year old man was subsequently arrested.
Superintendent Richard James said: "At no time was there a direct threat to members of the public and we thank the local community for their patience as we resolved this incident safely and securely."
Extra officers were put on patrol on Sunday 26 February to offer reassurance to people living and working in the area.
