1:31pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in News
A MAN who threatened to jump off a town centre car park was coaxed down by police negotiators.
Officers were called to the The Mall car park in Ainsworth Street, in Blackburn, at around 4.25pm yesterday after reports the man was sitting on the edge.
Specialist negotiators were called to the scene and he climbed down just over an hour later.
No roads were closed, but the area below the car park was closed off.
A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: “The incident did cause some disruption to the shopping centre.
“The man decided to come down and he was taken to the Royal Blackburn Hospital.”
