A woman is fighting for her life after police found her with a critical head injury and partially clothed in a Newington Green street yesterday morning.

Cops were called to Aden Grove at 7.40am after an alleged attack. They found the victim, in her 30s, and she was taken to hospital where she remains in a “critical but stable” condition, police said.

A man in his 60s was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and taken into custody. He has since been bailed pending further enquiries until mid-September.

Police are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to call 101, or contact Hackney Police on 07500 850625.
