Police helicopter for man on roof, later arrested

Many of you reported hearing a police helicopter hovering overhead last night and some of you experienced a very bright searchlight being trained on what seemed like several properties. As ever I put in a call to the Police and they have sent me this statement which I think is fairly self explanatory.

Police were called to an address in Uxbridge Road, W12 at approx 23:48hrs on Wednesday 9th March following report of a domestic incident.

Police Helicopter was called to assist police as a male was believed to be on the roof of the building.

A 30-year-old male was later arrested and taken to a West London police station.

One of the perils of living in a densley populated area is that when things go pear shaped in one place we all get the benefit of the fall out - which is presumably why our Council's plans to cram thousands more people in to this same area on seven floors of flats over the Market is proving so unpopular. Except with estate agents. And property developers.


  1. Only you could write a piece about the Police helicopter being used and turn it into a swipe against the Council!

  2. and only you could be brave enough to say that anonymously, brave guy
