Police are in a standoff with two men who are refusing to come down from the roof of a building in Kilburn.

Armed police are on the scene in Kingsgate Road as a precaution, after a person reportedly saw one of the men carrying a gun.

Lin Paris, who filmed this video of the men, told ITV London that she saw one of them performing a handstand before he walked across the roof like an 'acrobat'.
