AN inquest into the tragic death of a Liversedge mum of three has been opened.

Debra Mitchell, 48, died after falling from a balcony above a cafe in Bridlington last Monday night.

She had moved to Bridlington from Liversedge last November.

A post mortem examination revealed she died from injuries consistent with a fall and police say her death continues to be treated as unexplained.

A 36-year-old man arrested in connection with the incident was released on police bail pending further inquiries.

The area where she fell was cordoned off by police around 11.30pm last Monday and a forensic tent put up outside the Marina Cafe.

• Debra’s funeral will take place at Dewsbury Crematorium, Heckmondwike Road, on Thursday January 26 at 2.30pm. Donations will be taken in lieu of flowers.
