Wanted man takes to roof of Lincolnshire home to evade capture

This is ongoing.

Police are currently in the Salisbury Close area of Scunthorpe where wanted man, Kyle Ferguson, has taken to the roof of a house to evade capture.

This comes after two men in their 20s were arrested on Monday, August 14 on suspicion of assisting him.

A spokesperson for Humberside Police said: “We can assure the public and residents that we have their safety first and foremost in our minds and as such have established a cordon which affects Plymouth Road, Bristol Road, West Common Lane and Salisbury Close.

“Extra police patrols are in the vicinity to provide reassurance to local residents and we would ask that if anyone has any concerns that they talk to any one of our officers, we are there to help you.

“We would like to extend our thanks for the support shown by the residents during this operation and that we fully understand the inconvenience this type of incident creates, we want to reassure the community that we intend to resolve this at the earliest and safest opportunity.”

The cordon in place will cause travel disruption in the locality and people are being asked to avoid the area.
