ALL three emergency services were called out when a hospital patient climbed on to a roof and refused to come down.

It happened in the grounds of St James’s Hospital, Milton, at 4.15pm yesterday.

The man had climbed on to the roof of a 15ft high bin shed.

Firefighters from Southsea and Cosham arrived to find the man had already been talked down by hospital staff.

The police and paramedics took over.
