Llanelli's shock at woman's car park fall death
LLANELLI is "united in grief", following the death of a woman in the town centre on Monday.
Police have confirmed family members of the 41-year-old have now been traced, but further information, including her identity, was not available yesterday.
Shoppers were left "shocked and saddened" on Monday afternoon following news of the woman's apparent fall from the multi-storey car park at Murray Street.
The service road to the rear of the council-owned car park was closed by workers at around 1pm, with Murray Street also closed by officers from Dyfed-Powys Police during the afternoon. Both roads were reopened a few hours later.
Councillor John Jenkins, who represents the town's Elli ward, described the news as "just so sad" and said he hoped the town would support the family.
He said: "My heart goes out to the family who are left behind following this very tragic incident. It has shocked the town.
"I am sure everyone in Llanelli will be united in grief and I hope the family of the woman get the help and support they deserve at this difficult time."
It is believed the woman, who is said to have been well known in the indoor market, was discovered by traders.
People took to social networks to speak of their shock.
David Williams said the "enormity" of the situation he'd witnessed didn't hit until he was driving home hours later.
Detective Sergeant Ifan Charles, said: "If there are any witnesses to this incident that have not yet spoken to police I would ask that they contact officers at Llanelli Police Station on 101."
A Hywel Dda health board spokesman said: "We are unable to offer any comment, other than to express our sympathies with the family at this time."
