young irreducibles hunted by police after rooftop protest, Keighley (West Yorkshire)

from the capitalist press (Nov 8 2012):

Police are still searching for two young men who got away after a ten-hour rooftop protest in Keighley.

Officers had to cordon off the area around Redcliffe Street in the town after the pair got onto a roof at about 11am yesterday and started hurling slates as crowds gathered to watch.

They were seen moving between the rooftop and the inside of the house.

The men are wanted in connection with a recall to youth custody and a breach of a community order. Three people were arrested at the scene on suspicion of assisting an offender.

During the stand-off, trained negotiators were brought in to talk them down and police were withdrawn after the men’s retreat from the roof was settled on.
