A woman escaped severe injury after falling from the third floor of a building in Wisbech.
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.
“The woman was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn, Norfolk with serious, but not life-threatening injuries,” said a police spokesperson.
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.
