Cambridgeshire Police say they responded on Friday night at around 8.20pm to “reports of concern for a person” in Norwich Road.

When they arrived – with ambulance crews – they found the woman had fallen from the third-floor.

However, what complicated the issue was the arrest of a man on suspicion of assault earlier in the day. He was taken away for questioning to Thorpe Wood police station but released with no further action.

The incident involving the woman falling from the roof is not being treated as suspicious.

The property – next to a cycle repair shop – was taped off and police stayed outside throughout Saturday.

The condition of the woman who fell is not known.
