Police were called to reports of youths climbing on the roof of the former Shredded Wheat factory in Welwyn Garden City.

A police spokeswoman said: “Police were called at 6.21pm yesterday (Thursday) to reports of youths on the roof of the old Shredded Wheat building on Broadwater Road, Welwyn Garden City.
