Police successfully detained a man under the Mental Health Act after he was spotted on top of a Lincoln car park.

Many people posted concerns on social media after the Friars Lane area behind Broadgate car park was closed off by police.

Officers attended the car park on St Rumbold Street at 9.30pm on Tuesday, June 26, with one person commenting on a post in the Facebook group ‘Your’e probably from Lincoln if…’ saying “there’s a person on top of the car park”.

The road around the area was closed until 11.30pm, when the person had been brought to safety.
