Starbucks lift shaft fall: Woman breaks legs and pelvis
A spokesman said: "Ambulance staff were told that the woman in her 20s had tried to use the lift but when she stepped into the lift shaft there was nothing there and she fell approximately 25ft to the bottom of the shaft.
"Ambulance staff worked with firefighters to extricate her from the confined space."
The Starbucks coffee branch will remain closed until an investigation into how the incident happened is completed.
A spokesman said they were "shocked and distressed by this terrible incident", adding they were "working closely" with authorities as part of the investigation.
A spokesman for the Health and Safety Executive said the investigation is being carried out by the local authority.
