Police investigating the death of a woman at a supermarket in Shipley are appealing to the public to help identify the female.

A number of enquiries have been carried out to try and identify the woman, who is Asian and believed to be aged between 20 and 40 years-old. She is described as having shoulder-length dark hair which was tied in a ponytail and was wearing dark blue top and trousers with large silver buttons to the front and a lighter blue or purple scarf.

Detective Inspector Ryan Bragg, of Bradford CID, said: “We have tried various means to identify this woman but as yet have not been able to do so. I would urge anyone who believes they may know the identity of this woman or who has concerns for a family member of friend who fits this description to make contact immediately.

“Anyone with concerns or information should call Bradford CID on 101.”

Officers were called to the Asda supermarket in Manor Lane, shortly after 8.30 am today(Tue) following a report of a woman inside the premises with serious injuries.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The death is not being treated as suspicious and no one else is being sought in connection with the incident.

Early reports suggest she died of an apparent self-inflicted neck wound.
