Met Officers Save Man Trying To Jump Off Roof During G8 Protest

Sky News' Jason Farrell said the demonstrator appeared on the roof of a building at Beak Street, Soho, as police tried to secure it from protesters.

He was shouting at officers who were wearing climbing equipment and then ran towards the edge of the four-storey former police site before he was pulled back and wrestled to the ground.

He was taken to hospital with a bloodied head and is in a stable condition. Police said he has been detained under the Mental Health Act.
