A WOMAN jumped to her death from a city car park after she stopped taking medication.Rosaleen Williams (44) died after suffering multiple injuries jumping from Queensgate car park, on June 9.

A shop assistant at Queensgate cosmetics shop Lush, Mrs Williams had been suffering from psychological problems for just over a year, and had been told to take medication to try to help her, a city inquest heard.

However, her husband, Ian, said she had stopped taking the drugs previously, as she complained they made her drowsy.

Lush manager Melanie Staples said Mrs Williams had started her shift early on the day she died, and had seemed anxious. She said: "When she left on that day, she just disappeared, without saying goodbye. This was out of character."

At 1.40pm Pc Fiona Bail received a call on her radio about a woman threatening to jump from the car park. But by the time she arrived Mrs Williams had already jumped.

Dr Mark Harris told the inquest that she would have died instantly.

Deputy coroner David Heming recorded a verdict that Mrs Williams killed herself while the balance of her mind was disturbed.
