Police say a man who died after falling from the roof of an IKEA store was from Lee-on-the-Solent.

The 56-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene of the tragedy at the superstore in West Quay Road, Southampton, at 11.20am yesterday.

Hampshire Constabulary has appealed for witnesses. Police say the man’s death is not being treated as suspicious.
