A woman has fallen to her death from a Rochdale shopping centre car park roof just days after a defendant had been acquitted in a trial in which she had been the complainant.
Police were called today to the Wheatsheaf Shopping Centre after reports of a woman on the roof at 10.10am, but despite attempts to help her, she was later seen to fall.
She was taken to hospital but died as a result of her injuries.
The trial had concluded on Friday.
Greater Manchester Police has launched an investigation to establish the circumstances surrounding her death.
The matter has also been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
