Police, ambulance and fire crews have all been trying to talk the woman down from the roof this morning (Monday) and negotiations are continuing.

The A452 Kenilworth Road was closed between Alder Lane and Meer End Road at around 7am due to “an ongoing police incident”.

It is not yet clear how old the child is, or if either are injured.

Officers are urging drivers to avoid the area as work to bring the mother and child to safety continue.

Traffic is already building up around the area, with queues likely to continue through the morning.

A spokesperson for Solihull Police said: “The A452 Kenilworth Road is currently closed between Alder Lane and Meer End Road due to an ongoing police incident. Avoid the area.”
