However, after 20 minutes the man was talked down and was later interviewed by the police for being drunk and disorderly.
A witness from the Salvation Army said: "The man was drunk and obviously down on his luck. We were watching television when we heard someone had managed to get himself on the roof. The police and a fire crew turned up and about ten minutes later talked him down."

A police spokeswoman said: "We received a call at 4.45pm and attended the Salvation Army building where a man was on the top floor near a window threatening to jump.
"We detained a 30-year-old man from the Ipswich area and he was cautioned for being drunk and disorderly. None of the roads were closed off and I understand the man was shouting out of the window and just being generally drunk."
A spokesman from the Salvation Army declined to make any comment.
