Police were called after the man was seen sitting on the edge of the roof of Beetwell Street car park on Thursday.

A Derbyshire police spokesman said on Tuesday morning: “We had a call at 5.30pm to say a man was on the roof of the car park so we went up to him, spoke to him and took him to hospital for an assessment.”
