Singer killed fleeing shop
Police tape
Sussex police say Ms Waddell was running from a shop
A former singer with chart-topping dance band Soul II Soul has died after being hit by three cars.

Police said Doreen Waddell, 36, was fleeing from a store after being accused of shoplifting when she was struck by the cars.

The singer, who was originally from Essex and had a four-year-old son, was challenged by staff at a Tesco store in Shoreham, West Sussex on Friday.

She ran from the store and attempted to cross the nearby A27, but was hit by three cars and later died in hospital.

Fingerprint identity

Goods from the store, including children's items were found strewn across the road.

Police said Ms Waddell, of Clarendon Villas, Hove, had to be identified from fingerprints.

She is understood to have run from Tesco via a rear fire exit after being chased by security staff.

Ms Waddell was best known for her lead vocals on Soul II Soul's 1989 Club Classics Volume I album.
