The 45-year-old woman was found in a serious condition on the Isabel Trail, off Station Road, Haughton, at about 8pm on Saturday night.

The woman is believed to have left The Bell Inn pub in Haughton and was riding an electric bike, before she was found injured a short time later.

The ambulance service was called to reports of a woman in cardiac arrest and sent a MERIT trauma doctor who treated her at the scene before she was taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital, where she remains in a critical condition.

Detectives are investigating and have arrested a 50-year-old man from Stafford on suspicion of assault GBH with intent.

Detective Inspector Alan Lyford, senior investigating officer for Staffordshire Police, said: "We are keen to establish what happened and how she came about her injuries.

"If you were in the area at the time of the incident or have information that can help us to piece together the series of events, please get in touch."

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 431 of July 14. Alternatively, for guaranteed anonymity call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
