Woman Dies After Car Park Shutter Accident
A woman's died in Cambridge after an accident involving automatic car-park doors.
The East of England Ambulance Service say there were called to Ruth Bagnall Court, off Coleridge Road (near Mill Road) on Sunday night, but a woman in her 40s - couldn't be saved.
The housing group Luminus - which runs the site - say they were called by police to say the woman had died after an accident with a security shutter.
A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance service say:
"We received a call at 7.25pm on 14th August to reports of a woman who was not breathing off Coleridge Road, Cambridge. An ambulance crew, rapid response vehicle, ambulance officer and response car from East Anglian Air Ambulance were dispatched.
Sadly, there was nothing that could be done for the woman, believed to be in her 40s, who died at the scene. Our thoughts are with the friends and family involved in what is understandably a very sad time for them."
The group running the flats, the Luminus Group said:
"At around 9.15pm on Sunday 14 August Luminus was alerted by Cambridgeshire Police that a woman had died as a result of an accident involving a car park security shutter at Ruth Bagnall Court.
Luminus staff were on site within 30 minutes to assist the Police with their enquiries. While the investigation by the Police and Health and Safety Executive is underway it would be inappropriate to comment any further.
Luminus Group wishes to express its deepest sympathies to the family of the person who sadly died yesterday."
The results of a public consultation in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, on multi-million pound plans to devolve Westminster cash and power to the county, are in.
