Detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a woman who died during an incident at a city centre car park.

Officers were called to the Metro car park in Union Road at 11.05pm yesterday (Saturday 1 August 2020).

The woman was given CPR by paramedics but she was pronounced dead a short time later.

A 59-year-old man was swiftly arrested at the scene in connection with the incident and remains in custody.

The area remains cordoned off this morning as detectives continue with their enquiries.

Detective Chief Inspector Sally Blaiklock, who is leading the investigation, said: “A team of detectives, supported by uniformed officers and forensic teams, are all working tirelessly to understand the circumstances surrounding this very serious case.

“We believe those involved in this incident are known to one another and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with it at this time.

"We understand the level of concern that incidents of this nature cause our communities. Officers will remain in the area while our investigation continues.

"We are all working tirelessly to understand the circumstances surrounding the woman's death and we are still urging anyone with any information, who hasn’t already come forward, to please get in touch with us.

“If you have any information – no matter how insignificant you may think it may seem – I would urge you to contact police as soon as possible.”

"Anyone who has any information is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 957 of 1 August 2020, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
