Two men have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after the death of a woman who fell from a second floor window.

The woman, in her 30s, fell from a homeless resettlement centre in York, early police inquiries suggest.

Officers were called to the Peasholme Centre, Fishergate at 00:20 GMT, to reports of a sudden death.

The two arrested men, aged 48 and 50 and both from York, are in police custody for questioning.

Forensic officers are examining with the scene, with a police cordon expected to be in place for the rest of the day.
