A MAN who stood on a roof in Barrow for four hours throwing tiles and bricks into the road has been bailed into NHS care.
The man has been bailed into the care of Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

Have your say
I am responding to Bazmans' comments on this site & this topic.....
Suffice to say Bazman that you do not have one iota of a clue as to what you are talking about, using a water cannon as such will only hurt or kill the poor man when it is so obviously visible that he needs help, help which is denied to him as a result of government cutbacks.
You also mention so-called political correctness--what the hell are you on about there?
You, Bazman mention too much health & safety or elf & safety as you put it, well if you think for one second that there is too much health & safety, spare a thought for all the people who have died at work due to lack of it.
A couple of examples, a man died in Carlisle in an industrial oven a few year back & further back 4 men died in an accident in Wigan.
Was there too much health & safety on the Piper Alfa oil rig in 1988 when 167 men perished?
Don't think too hard......
Anyway you, Bazman ought to have more sympathy for man........you're heartless...
I always find empathy is useful indicator of intelligence.
