Police have identified the woman who died after falling from the roof of an IKEA store.

They say an inquest will be held into the death of the 38-year-old woman from Fair Oak, whose name has not been released. Her next of kin have been informed of the tragedy.

She fell from the roof of the IKEA store in West Quay Road, Southampton on Monday afternoon.

Her body was discovered in the car park, which was cordoned off as emergency services dealt with the incident.

An IKEA spokesman said: ‘As we await the outcomes of the investigation, we will of course be reviewing the safety and security of our carpark to see if anything can be done to prevent this unexpected event from happening again.

‘Our thoughts are with the family of the individual involved at this difficult time.’
