A busy road in Colchester town centre has been closed to all traffic this morning after a woman fell from a multi-storey car park.

All three emergency services have been spotted in Southway, near to the St Botolph's Circus roundabout. 

Traffic is being held at the roundabout and a cordon has been set up around the area. 

A photo of the scene appears to show more than six police vehicles in attendance. 

A spokesman for Essex Police said: "We are currently on scene at an incident in Colchester.

"Officers responded to concerns for the welfare of a woman on top of a car park in Osborne Street around 7.30am this morning (Sunday, June 13).

"She has been taken to hospital for further treatment of life-threatening injuries.

"The surrounding roads have been closed to allow emergency services to assist."

Police have since confirmed the woman suffered her injuries after falling from the car park.
