A woman has died after falling from the roof of a car park in Rochdale. It comes after a man accused of raping her was acquitted following a trial.
The police watchdog has been notified after it emerged the woman had been in contact with Greater Manchester Police in the days before she died.
Two specially trained officers who had been providing support to the woman after she made the complaint visited her at her home on Friday evening to tell her the verdict that had been passed earlier that day.
The woman appeared angry and upset at the news and was offered support by the officers, police said.
Later that evening, the woman called police in a distressed state and officers returned to her home along with ambulance staff.
She was calmer when the officers attended, and they again gave her advice and made a further referral to partner agencies helping to give her support.
Greater Manchester Police have referred the matter to the Independent Police Complaints Commission and a full investigation will be launched to establish the circumstances surrounding her death.
Assistant Chief Constable Dawn Copley said:
