The woman is believed to have been in her thirties.

A police cordon remains at the scene.

Officers are not searching for any witnesses.

A camp of around 20 tents in the car park was taken down in February after Leeds City Council worked to find housing for people and the organiser agreed that the encampment had run its course.

But tents have remained on the patch of grass nearby.

The woman's name has not yet been released.
