A multi-storey car park in King's Lynn was temporarily closed by police this afternoon (Monday, June 10) after a woman climbed to the top.
St. James Car Park on Clough Lane and the adjacent Blackfriars Street were closed at 1.55pm and 2.05pm respectively.
Access to the car park was stopped at 2.10pm.
A spokeswoman for Norfolk Police said the car park was closed "due to concerns for the safety of a woman."
The car park was reopened at 2.40pm after the woman had been safely led down.
A spokesman for the borough council said: "We were told by CCTV that the police had closed roads in King’s Lynn town centre and St James Car Park and, having checked with Norfolk Police, were advised to let people know."
