A woman who climbed on the roof of a railway station was talked down and taken to hospital.

Police were called to reports of a woman standing on the roof of Harrow and Wealdstone London Station, the Bridge High Street at 4.55pm yesterday.

Services running though the station were delayed for several hours as British Transport police, Metropolitan Police officers and the fire brigade tried to talk her down.

Staff from the emergency services were able to persuade her down before she was taken to hospital.

British Transport Police say the railway line was handed back to Network Rail at 5.27pm.
