Police are investigating the death of a 33-year-old woman, believed to be a Polish national, after she fell from a cable car in north Wales.

The woman who lived in Llandudno fell around 70 feet from the cable car on the Great Orme headland on Friday.

North Wales Police said there were no suspicious circumstances and that the "cable car was not at fault".

Officers have not yet released the woman's name and she was travelling alone in the cable car.

The incident happened at an area near the ski lodge on the headland at around 1100 BST. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

A force spokesman said: "An adult female has died as a result of falling from cable car."

"There appear to be no suspicious circumstances and the coroner has been informed."

The Health and Safety Executive was informed of the incident.
