A bloody prison riot in a juvenile centre is coming to an end after police used cigarettes to talk the young inmates down off the roof.

More than 20 young inmates broke out of their cells using chainsaws on Sunday night, attacking staff and other inmates before climbing onto the roof of the Frank Baxter Juvenile Justice Centre in Kariong, NSW. 

The youths had obtained keys to a maintenance shed, and broke in to steal tools, Nine News reported. 

They then opened up the cells of other inmates, sparking an overnight siege as riot police tried to talk a group of rampaging teenagers down from the roof.

As of Monday morning, members of the group remained on the roof trying to tear it apart and throwing parts of it at officers stood below them.  

The group are armed with sticks and metal poles. While four have surrendered, eight inmates are believed to still be on the roof. 

Emergency workers were told to lock themselves in their cars as the balaclava-wearing youths stood on the roof armed with shovels and a chainsaw, hurling abuse at them.  

Police were seen handing cigarettes to young inmates after they broke into a maintenance shed and stole tools, leading to a riot that saw six hospitalised 

Officers spent Sunday night negotiating with inmates at the Frank Baxter Juvenile Justice Centre, before finally managing to coax some of the inmates down early on Monday morning
