Man dies after apparently falling through a roof

Posted on 10th April 2017

A man has died after apparently falling through the roof of a building in Ambergate.

We were called to a unit at Derwent Works, Matlock Road, at 8pm last night (Sunday, April 9) to a report that a man had fallen through a roof.

The man, thought to be aged 19, was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

We don’t believe there are any suspicious circumstances around his death and we are preparing a file for the coroner.
