POLICE are trying to discover what happened to a man found unconscious in the street with head injuries.

The 21-year-old man from Tiptree was found unconscious on the ground by a member of the public in Braintree, at 5.45pm last night.

He was taken to Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, with serious head injuries. It is not clear whether he was attacked or had a fall.

An ambulance service spokesman said: “An ambulance was quickly on scene. The crew stabilised the man's condition before taking him on blue lights to Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford where medics were on standby. His condition on arrival was said to be critical.”

Before he was found, at the junction of Panfield Lane and Aetheric Road, he was spotted talking to a woman in a pink top and the driver of a blue taxi-type vehicle, which had a slogan in white writing which possibly said: “We're always here to help you.” He spoke to both people separately.
