Police have detained a wanted teenager after he fled from officers and climbed onto a Peterborough city centre rooftop this afternoon.

Officers attempted to arrest the wanted boy in the Broadway area of Peterborough city centre this lunchtime, Tuesday August 8.

The 16-year-old climbed on to a roof and officers cordoned off the road close to the library and job centre to negotiate with him.

The teenager had a warrant out for his arrest after missing a court date.

He has now been detained and the cordon lifted by police.

The 16-year-old from Peterborough was arrested for breach of a court order and remains in custody at Thorpe Wood.
