Police talk down man from Sky Tower

5:56 am on 6 January 2013

A man has been coaxed down after a long standoff at the top of Sky Tower in central Auckland.

Streets were cordoned off around the Sky Tower for more than four hours as the police negotiated with a man who was on level 54 of the building, where the commercial bungy operation is based.

Police say all cordons have been removed and the roads surrounding the building are now open.
