Barrow police issue warning after teen's rooftop climb

POLICE have issued a warning after a 14-year-old boy was rescued from the rooftop of a Barrow working mens club.

Barrow firefighters assisted the teenager down from the roof of Central Preston Street Working Mens Club in Barrow town centre on Monday evening.

The teenager had climbed up scaffolding and got onto the roof. The fire service were called out at 6.20pm and they assisted him through a trapdoor and down an internal staircase.

Sergeant Andy Travis of Barrow police said: “We would like to remind young people not to put themselves in danger by climbing scaffolding and onto buildings. They could also put others in the community in danger as the emergency services could be needed elsewhere.”
