Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with a rooftop incident in Keighley.

A 16-year-old boy and 17-year-old youth were arrested yesterday are were being held in custody by Airedale and North Bradford Police last night.

Last Wednesday, two teenagers occupied the roof of a house (above) in Redcliffe Street, Highfield, and refused to come down, despite the efforts of trained negotiators.

When police finally moved into the property after about ten hours, the pair had disappeared.

Police say a 16-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage, affray, recall to custody, a breach of curfew and public nuisance, while the 17-year-old is being held on suspicion of breaching a community order, criminal damage, affray and public nuisance.
