Hampshire and Isle of Wight police officers are investigating after a woman found with injuries in Lee-on-the-Solent.

Police were called by the ambulance service at 8.10pm last night (Sunday 20 August) after a member of the public found a woman in her 60s on the pavement with serious head injuries along Broom Way, just south of Peel Common Roundabout.

The woman was taken to Southampton General Hospital where she continues to receive treatment.

The circumstances surrounding the woman’s injuries are unexplained at this time.

A road closure is in place on Broom Way, between Peel Common Roundabout and the Brune Lane junction, and is likely to remain in place for the majority of today. This will allow officers to conduct enquiries at the scene in order to establish the full circumstances, and how the woman came to be injured.

We are keen to hear from anyone who drove this stretch of road between 7.30pm to 8pm on Sunday 20 August. In particular, we would like to hear from anyone who has a Dash Cam so we can review the footage captured within these time parameters.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting Operation Lyne, or 44230337254. You can also submit information to us about this incident online via the following link: https://www.hampshire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/
