Children Found Dead After Mother Falls To Her Death

Police investigating the death of a pregnant woman who fell from a multi-storey car park have discovered the bodies of three young children in a house in Suffolk.

The children were found dead at a property in London Road South, Lowestoft, Suffolk, on Monday.

It is believed that their mother is one Fiona Anderson, 20, who died just after 8am on Monday morning as a result of head injuries sustained after falling from a multi-storey car park in Gordon Road just after 8am.

Det Supt John Brocklebank of the Norfolk and Suffolk major investigation team said: "We are in the early stages of a large investigation into what has happened. It is too early to be able to come up with a definitive explanation and we will be keeping an open mind.

"However, from our initial inquiries, we do not believe there is any threat to the wider community. Our priorities now are to establish the circumstances behind the woman's death and how it may be related to the deaths of the three children."
