British police have detained a man who spent the night on the roof of the Palace of Westminster on suspicion of criminal damage and trespassing. Scotland Yard said Sunday it was too early to know why the 23-year-old made his way to the top of Neo-Gothic masterpiece.

Emergency services spotted the man just after 9 p.m. Saturday and he was detained early Sunday. (AP Photo/Yui Mok, PA Wire) UNITED KINGDOM OUT - NO SALES - NO ARCHIVES (The Associated Press)
