Weymouth Esplanade Shut Off

Weymouth Clock Tower

(Updated 7:45am 23rd June 2014)

Part of Weymouth seafront had to be closed off by Police this morning (Monday 23rd June).

It's after a man in his 20's was spotted on the roof of the Royal Hotel at around 4:30am.

Dorset Police shut the road and tried negotiating with the man and members of the public were told to stay away.

Fire and Ambulance crews joined Officers at the scene.

First Buses had diverted services to Debenhams due to the Esplanade closure.

The road was opened again at around 7:30am.

During the incident the force thanked members of the public for their understanding as the situation unfolded:

"Dorset Police appreciates the disruption this will cause during the morning and apologises for any inconvenience caused. However, the priority lays with the safety of public, the man on the roof and officers."
