Up a tree

A semi clothed Czech man who climbed up a tree and howled like a dog had to be coaxed down by police yesterday.

Wearing only tracksuit bottoms, the man refused to leave the tree in Cardiff for two hours.

Local resident Martin Townley, 43, said: “He woke me up. I thought it was a dog howling. I had a chat with him but he just said, ‘Leave me alone, it’s my tree’.”

South Wales Police said the man was not arrested but was taken to a mental health hospital for “his own safety”.
