He Had High Hopes - An apparently disorientated man who had climbed onto the roof of the royal palace on Amsterdam's Dam square was persuaded down by police after several hours on Friday morning.

The man had been sitting on one of the statues, apparently playing a mouth organ.

Police said later the man had performed similar stunts on the spire of the city's Westerkerk. He has been taken to a clinic for psychiatric assessment.

COMMENT: Legally he's in a lot of trouble as well. Trespassing and endangering himself, the rescuers, and - as the police would tell him, a monument.
