Roads around Oval are still on lockdown this afternoon and a policeman is in hospital with injuries sustained at the scene as officers continue talks with a woman on a roof in the area.
A woman climbed onto the roof of a property on Harleyford Road at around 11.35pm last night, and police are still at the scene trying to get her down.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan police said a uniformed officer was injured when he fell from the first floor to a basement area at the property. The officer is now in a stable condition in a south London hospital.
