THE woman who died after falling from the roof of Bexleyheath Broadway Shopping Centre on Wednesday has been named.

Jean Gerlack, 67, died at the scene after falling from the multi-storey car park at around 10.15am on a busy and bright shopping day in Bexleyheath.

A witness who ran to check her pulse immediately after the impact claims he saw the pensioner fall “head first” after she was seen sitting on top of the wall moments earlier.

The London Air Ambulance landed on the top of Cineworld in the Broadway and paramedics arrived within minutes but she could not be saved and was pronounced dead at 10.30am.

Met Police are currently not treating the incident as suspicious.

A post-mortem examination is due to take place in the next few days and an inquest into her death opened and adjourned early next week.
