A 23-year-old man was arrested on Sunday morning in the wake of spending around eight hours on the top of Britain’s Parliament building, media reported.

Media reports said the man appeared at around 9 p.m. on Saturday. The police officers, mediators and fire police were called at the scene after 15 minutes, according to Xinhua news agency.

The man, wearing a grey top and black trousers, was pacing here and there between buttresses on the edge of the roof. He was arrested at 5 a.m. on Sunday, and was taken to a central London police headquarters.

Police arrested the man on suspicion of criminal damage and trespassing. As such, the reason with reference to why he stayed on the top was not known, Scotland Yard said.

Some media reports said the roof of the parliament building has been targeted by campaign groups who oppose an airport construction project at the Heathrow airport.
