A man has been arrested following a rooftop protest.
Officers were called to Holtye Crescent in Maidstone at 3.48pm yesterday, after a man climbed onto a roof wearing no shoes or shirt.
A cordon was put in place while police attempted to talk him down.
Neighbours said he climbed out of a window and onto a neighbouring roof.
Jenny Shepherd, 21, said: "I live just outside the road closure. He seems harmless, it is just a waste of the time of all these police and paramedics who could be helping someone else."
A police dog unit was sent, alongside five police cars, two ambulances and an ambulance car.
