Woman threatens to jump from car park

This afternoon a woman climbed over the tenth-floor barrier of Westquay car park and threatened to jump.

The incident occurred around 12.30pm and passing shoppers called the police and fire brigade and described an adult woman hanging off the outside of the multi-storey car park.
