Third year Theology Philosophy and Ethics student, Sophia Bingham, reports seeing security staff around the front entrance, and the student in question being escorted out of the library in handcuffs by three police officers.

She told The Manchester Tab: "At first I couldn't really see what was going on, there were loads of security guys surrounding the entrance as I walked in.

"Then I saw him in handcuffs surrounded by three police officers and they left."

Greater Manchester Police told The Manchester Tab "Shortly before 12.15pm today officers were called to Burlington Street East to reports of a man on the roof of a building.

"Officers attended and a 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage. He remains in custody for questioning.

"Enquiries are ongoing."
