Police in Flintshire say they have had to speak to a number of children over the past few days warning them of the dangers of playing on building roofs.

Designing out Crime officer Kelsey Reed said;

“Roofs are extremely dangerous places to play and the potential for serious injury or worse is always there. We don’t want anyone to get hurt so we would urge parents, guardians and carers of young people to warn about the dangers of climbing onto buildings and playing on roofs.”

South Flintshire Local Policing team appealed to parents in Saltney at the beginning of the month to warn thier children about the dangers of playing on the roofs of industrial units in the town.

Youngsters had been spotted via CCTV footage climbing on the roofs of units on the  Brynau Four Estate, River Lane in Saltney.

Officers say they know who the offenders are and will be speaking to them in due course.

In an update on social media police said;

We are having repeated reports of children climbing on the roofs at that location.

I would hate to be the officer that has to tell their parents that they have fallen through the roof and are seriously injured or worse.

We do have names and photos of these youths and they will be getting a visit from police.

Please warn your children of the consequences of this dangerous activity.
