Exeter Council expresses sympathy following death of woman

Exeter City Council has expressed its sympathy to relatives and friends of the woman killed by a falling tree at the weekend.

It follows the death of a 21-year-old woman on Saturday night. The woman, who had yet to be named was killed when a tree fell on the tent that she was sleeping in on Western Way, Exeter.

The number of homeless people is, unfortunately high in Exeter. The City Council works closely with its partner organisations to ensure that help is available to everybody faced with homelessness. If people are concerned about somebody who is sleeping rough they can call our 24 hour helpline on 0800 151 3441.

– Cllr Rob Hannaford, Lead Councillor for Housing and Community Involvement
