Parachutist jumps from Middlesbrough tower block
3:03pm Friday 20th September 2013 in News
A BASE jumper who leapt from the top of a 15-storey building in Middlesbrough was spoken to by police this morning (Friday).
The 43-year-old launched himself off a block of flats in the Netherfields area at about 7.30am.
Members of the public alerted the police as they thought he was attempting to commit suicide but as he jumped from the roof of Welton House he deployed his parachute.
The man then landed safely on the ground.
A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: "The man was spoken to by officers and was given words of advice."
