The family of a 93-year-old Birmingham woman who was battered in her own bed has appealed for help to catch her attacker.

Emma Winnall sustained multiple injuries including a fractured skull and a broken arm after last week's assault.

Speaking at a news conference, her daughter, Joyce Blencoe, said what had happened to her mother had ''broken'' her heart.

She added that the attack was a "horrific nightmare" and appealed for anyone with information to contact police.
