A man has been arrested after he climbed onto the roof of a petrol station in Brixworth.

The main road through Brixworth village was closed at 10.30am on Saturday after reports that a man was climbing over garden fences.

The man, who was later found to be wanted for a number of offences, was chased by police officers. He then climbed on to the roof of Blason’s petrol station in Northampton Road.

The area was cordoned off by police and the force helicopter and police dog car were in attendance.

The road was eventually re-opened at about 12.45pm after the man climbed down.
