A WOMAN HAS been killed after being stabbed in an Aldi in Yorkshire.

North Yorkshire Police said the 30-year-old died after being stabbed inside the Skipton store at 3.27pm today.

The suspect was initially detained by brave members of staff and public, before he was arrested by officers who were quickly on scene.

He was taken into custody on suspicion of attempted murder, but it has now turned into a murder investigation despite the efforts of medics to save the victim.

The woman’s family are being supported by police officers while enquiries continue.

Police said they are not in a position to identify the victim at this stage, and urge people to “respect her family’s privacy and to avoid speculation and rumour on social media”.

A police scene guard will remain in place overnight at Aldi.

Witnesses or anyone with information that could assist the investigation are urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 1, and speak to the Force Control Room.

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
