A 19-year-old woman has died in hospital after being found slumped by a bus stop this morning.

The woman was found just after 5am by a member of the public who alerted police.

Police arrived in the Seacroft area of Leeds and found the women by the bus stop and she was soon put into an ambulance.

The woman was pronounced dead a short time later, Leeds Live reports.

A police spokesman said enquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances of her death, which is currently being treated as unexplained.

The road has been sealed off by police while investigations continue.

Bus driver Tracy Aitchison, who stopped to help at the scene, said: “I was the driver of the 16a bus going to Pudsey Bus Station.

“As I approached the bus stop I could see somebody laid on the floor. I let the passengers on the bus and I then went to the two gentleman who were with the young girl.

“One was giving CPR and the other was on the phone to the ambulance. I asked if there was anything I could do and a couple of minutes later the police arrived and took over.”

Lorraine Cook, who works at Coral bookmakers opposite the scene, said: “I got to work at 7.30am and I thought: ‘What the hell is going on now?’.

“There’s always something going on round here.

“You see police wandering about but it’s mostly just PCSOs. It’s very rare you see anything like this. I’ve never seen police tape like this and I’ve been working here for two years.
