A DRUNK man climbed to the top of an 80ft crane on The Rock after a night out.

The man had climbed up the crane earlier on Friday night, and fire crews and police were called at around 5am this morning.

It is believed the 26-year-old was drunk and was at the top of the crane singing songs after a night out, when a member of the public reported it in the fear that he was about to jump.

Emergency services spoke to the man in a bid to get coax him down from the crane, and about an hour later he eventually came down.

Fire crews from Bury, Whitefield, and a specialist aerial appliance from Bolton attended, as well as police.

The specialist appliance was not needed, as the man managed to climb down the crane of his own accord.

He's a bit old for fannying about like that isn't he! We've all done daft things but I think even I grew out of it by 26.

It's not his age it's his IQ we should be looking at
