Woodstock woman suffers 'accidental' head injuries

A woman who suffered serious head injuries following a night out was probably hurt as a result of a "tragic accident", police have said.

The 41-year-old was rushed to hospital after officers were called in the early hours of Sunday morning to a property in Browns Lane, Woodstock.

A 45-year-old man was held on suspicion of attempted murder and bailed.

Police said they were still making inquiries but at this stage it was not thought her injuries were suspicious.

Det Ch Insp Mark Johns said: "It appears the woman suffered the head injuries as a result of a tragic accident.

"I would still appeal to anyone with information which could assist our inquiry to get in touch."

The woman is in a stable condition at John Radcliffe Hospital.
