Wirral woman throws herself from taxi

Police are investigating why a 23 year old jumped from window.

Merseyside Police have told Heart that the 23 year old from Upton, Wirral, was travelling from the Wirral to Liverpool in the early hours of Thursday morning (27th) when she had opened the taxi window whilst in the Wallasey tunnel and had been leaning out of it.
