Six arrested after ‘mams’ rooftop siege
SIX people were arrested after a group climbed on to rooftops and demanded to see their “mams”.
Roof tiles were also thrown at police during the siege on top of a row of terraced houses.
One eyewitness in Bishop Auckland, Co Durham, said: “They had been drinking and were shouting. They were demanding that someone go and get their mams.”
But they all eventually climbed down.
Three men, two teenage boys and one teenage girl were arrested on suspicion of affray, criminal damage and shoplifting. One of the men was also arrested on suspicion of burglary.
KREMLIN critic Alexei Navalny has lost an appeal against his jailing for violating the terms of a suspended sentence.
The Russian opposition leader was detained last month after returning from Germany, where he was treated for a near-fatal nerve agent attack.
He blames Russian President Vladimir Putin for the attack but the Kremlin denies any involvement.
Navalny was accused of breaking the terms of a 2014 sentence for embezzlement, requiring him to report to Russian police.
In court yesterday, in a speech referencing the Bible and Harry Potter, he called the charges “absurd” as he was unable to report to police while in hospital.
The judge sent him back to a penal colony.
A spokesman for Mr Putin said: “It is absolutely none of our business.”
