The man had stripped to the waist following a domestic argument and was refusing to come dowm from the top of the Tim Bobbin pub in Padiham Road.

Police confirmed that officers were called to the pub at 10am, and officers managed to persuade the man to come down peacefully after around 30 minutes.

No arrests were made.
