A TEENAGE boy had to be rescued from the roof of a Knutsford bank with a broken ankle after reportedly jumping between buildings.

Fire crews from Northwich and the specialist rope unit from Knutsford rushed to Princess Street in the town at 1.05pm on Saturday, March 1.

On arrival they found the teenager trapped on the roof of Lloyds TSB.

Firefighters set up a cordon and set up the rope rescue unit and rescued the boy, who had broken his right ankle, from the roof. Ambulance and police were also in attendance.

Princess Street-based magazine INCheshire said when the boy was rescued he had a camera attached to his head.

Free-runners are known for filming their activities and uploading them to social media networks.

Maybe if he had somewhere to go like a youth club this wouldn't have happened. Yes he's an idiot but when our towns teenagers haven't anywhere to go this is the sort of thing that happens.
