London flag-wearing protester arrested after night on station roof
UK police arrested a man who spent the night on the roof of London’s St. Pancras station draped in the English flag, causing Eurostar and other train operators to suspend all services.
The incident occurred on the same day as pro-Brexit protests in London that lasted into Friday night.
“A 44 year old man has this morning been arrested for trespass and obstruction of the railway, having spent the night on the roof of St. Pancras Railway Station,” said a Saturday morning statement from the British Transport Police (BTP).
Police were called just after 7 p.m. local time (3 p.m. ET) Friday after reports of a man in a “precarious position” at St. Pancras, according to the BTP.
