Police probe death in hotel balcony fall
Police are investigating the death of a young woman who plunged nine floors to her death from an apartment balcony.
The 23-year-old, named in reports as model Laura Pahomova, was found dead on Sunday morning following the incident at the Light Boutique Aparthotel in Manchester.
Greater Manchester Police said they had launched an investigation into the incident but did not believe her death to be suspicious.
A force spokesman said: "Officers found a 23-year-old woman had fallen from a balcony several floors up and landed on another balcony nine floors below." "She suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. Inquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances of the death."
Ms Pahomova reportedly came to the UK from Latvia several years ago to study and lived in Blackburn.
