Police officers talked down a woman from the roof of a Lewisham Hospital building last night (March 10).

The 37-year-old woman had clambered up to the top of the building, leading to police being called out at 10.28pm.

Police negotiators were called but later cancelled after officers spoke to the woman and were able to persuade her to come down from the roof around 12 minutes later.

A Lewisham police spokeswoman said: "The woman was taken into the care of the medical authorities."
