A man has been taken to hospital after an incident in Irvine that saw part of the town centre cordoned off.

Officers were called to reports of a disturbance in a flat in the North Ayrshire town's High Street at about 14:50.

A man could later be seen on the roof of the building having apparently climbed out of a window.

Police said a 22-year-old man had subsequently been taken to Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock.

Officers in riot gear had earlier taken up position in a shop underneath the flat.

No further details of the incident have been confirmed by police.
