The man was talked down from roof of NCP car park on Chorlton Street
Police negotiators spent almost two hours persuading a man to come down from the roof of a city centre car park.
Trained officers were called to the NCP car park on Chorlton Street after a man clambered onto the top level of the multi-storey on Tuesday night.
Emergency crews attended the scene, near to Manchester’s Gay Village, at around 8.40pm.
Police negotiators spoke to the man and he was eventually brought down from the roof at 10.20pm.
He has been detained under the Mental Health Act and taken to hospital.
Parts of Chorlton Street and Bloom Street were closed for around two hours while police dealt with the incident.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “We were called to a report of a male on the roof of the NCP car park.
“Police and specialist negotiators attended and spoke to him.
“The incident was dealt with and the man was brought down from the roof at 10.20pm.
“He has been detained under the Mental Health Act.”
