By George Bowden

The incident occurred at a house in Bigbury-on-Sea, Devon.

A 102-year-old man who was trapped on the roof of his home for three days has died, police said.

Ron Easton had climbed on to the roof of an extension on his Devon home with a bucket of tools, but got stuck after falling over or collapsing, according to Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue.

One of his friends called 999 after spotting three unopened milk bottles outside his home in Bigbury-on-Sea on Wednesday.

A Twitter account for Kingsbridge Police said Easton died on Friday, adding: “Our sincere condolences go out to the family and friends of Ron.”

Easton was discovered lying face down on a garden rake with his bucket of tools next to him, according to the South Western Ambulance Service.
