One of the Fijian men who took to the roof of Sydney's Villawood Detention Centre in protest over deportation to Fiji has been talked down from a roof-top this morning.

Two men and a woman have been protesting on a roof-top at the centre since Monday, saying they fear for their lives if they are sent back to Fiji.

Radio Australia reports a spokeswoman for the Immigration Department confirmed one of the men was talked down from the roof and that no concessions were given to the man.

The spokeswoman also said there'll be no change in the outcome of his case.

Australian Federal Police were called to the centre yesterday to help immigration officials and trained negotiators to end the three-day impasse.

Negotiations continue with the second man and the woman who remain on the roof.
