Police and many firefighters raced to help a man who was seen on the roof of the Amblehurst Hotel on Washway Road in Sale.
We are not sure how the man got onto the roof, some homeless people and asylum seekers have stayed in this hotel.
The man was seen by everyone and could be heard shouting as trained staff talked to him.
This also shows to people how important our emergency services are to every one of us, despite the government making them fine people at weddings and birthday parties and other things they are and always will be there for all of us when we need them most.
