A woman has fallen to her death from the fifth floor roof of a busy shopping centre car park yesterday.
The woman, who has not been named, landed near the entrance to The Galleria designer outlet, in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, at around 1.40pm.
An air ambulance was called to the scene near the A1(M) motorway but paramedics could not revive her.
A Bedfordshire Police spokesman said: ‘Police and emergency services were called to the Galleria, Hatfield, at 1.40pm today following reports that a woman had fallen from the building.
‘Sadly, the woman died at the scene.
‘Her family and next of kin have been informed. Police are not treating her death as suspicious at this time.’
East of England Ambulance Service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: ‘On arrival the woman was found in a critical condition and following the best efforts of police officers land and air ambulance crews, she was pronounced dead shortly after.
‘Our thoughts are with her family at this tragic time.’
