A YOUNG Wigan man, who climbed up on top of his friend’s roof in the early hours of the morning, had to be rescued by firefighters.

At around 4am on today (Tuesday) emergency services attended Warrington Road, Marus Bridge, after a man, who was described as a little drunk, became stuck on top of his pal’s house.

This was in a bid to try and get inside after the friend had forgotten his keys.

But when it became apparent he could neither get in the property from the height, or make his way down, his accomplice rang for help.

Crews used a hydraulic platform to return him to safety in a small cage.
