Detectives have appealed for witnesses after a man died after falling from a multi-storey car park.

Police cordoned off Rishworth Street car park at 10.37am yesterday.

A 30-year-old man from South Yorkshire was taken to Pinderfields Hospital with serious internal injuries but later died.

Det Insp Mark Catney of Wakefield CID, said: “We are asking anyone who saw this incident to come forwards and speak with detectives to help us build a picture of what has taken place.

“At this stage we do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances in this man’s death but it is important we speak with as many people as possible who may have information or have seen what has happened.”

Witnesses should contact Det Con Tom Peniston at Wakefield CID on 101.
