A man had earlier been on the roof of the house, throwing roofing tiles at police.

The road was cordoned off and police negotiators and the man’s lawyer were called in and he was eventually persuaded to come down.

Esslemont Road had been shut at the junctions of Jessie Road and Delamere Road, as police dealt with the incident.

Police also closed Jessie Road at the junction with Francis Avenue as they drafted in an armed response team, officers with Taser stun guns and a dog unit.
