A road in Shepherd's Bush was closed for five hours during a stand-off between police and a suspected burglar.
Officers were called to Bassein Park Road at 5.15pm on Monday (July 20) to reports of a man causing a disturbance.
When they arrived they found a 32-year-old man on the roof of a house.
London Ambulance Service, London Fire Brigade and police negotiators attended the scene, and the man was arrested shortly after 10.30pm on suspicion of aggravated burglary and for being wanted for burglary.
According to reports he had hurled tiles and other debris at officers and threatened to jump during the stand-off.
He was taken to a west London police station for questioning.
At this early stage officers believe the man made his way onto the roof following the disturbance.
