Police are appealing for information after a woman was injured after falling out of a moving car in Leigh.

The woman suffered cuts and grazes following the incident in London Road at around 8.40pm on Saturday, June 1.

She was helped by members of the public but did not require hospital treatment.

Police were called to a second incident at around 12.20am on Sunday, June 2, when the same woman was found unconscious close to North Fambridge train station in Station Approach, North Fambridge.

She had suffered serious injuries and we believe she may have been involved in a collision with a vehicle.

A 26-year-old man was arrested later that day on suspicion of grievous bodily harm, actual bodily harm and common assault.

He has been released on bail while we continue our enquiries.

Sergeant Jonathan Loudon, of Chelmsford’s Domestic Abuse Investigations Team, said: “We are continuing to safeguard the victim following these two incidents.

“She was taken to hospital with serious injuries, and a suspected a broken leg, after being found in North Fambridge and we believe witnesses to an earlier incident in Leigh could hold key information.

“We would urge anyone with information to contact Chelmsford police station on 101 quoting crime reference 42/86233/19 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
