Two men have been arrested after they climbed up a clock tower in Gourock on Thursday.

Police were called to Bath Street shortly after 17:00 following reports the men had climbed up scaffolding on the St John's Church bell tower.

The first man came down not long after police negotiators arrived.

The second man, who is 35, came down at about 00:40. He is expected to appear at Greenock Sheriff Court later.
