A carer in her 60s is fighting for her life after suffering serious head injuries at a property in Holloway’s Ringcross Estate.
The incident happened in the early hours in Papworth Gardens, off George’s Road.
The woman is believed to have been injured during the course of her duties.
There has been no suggestion she was assaulted, though police officers were at the property this afternoon.
