Police are asking for help after a South African woman was found with a head injury in Weston.

The woman became separated from her friend and was last seen near Charlie’s Chippy, and then soon after in the area near the Grand Pier at about 6.20pm on May 20.

She was found by officers almost 12 hours later, at 6.15am the next day on Marchfields Way, with CCTV footage showing her coming from the Bournville area.

Officers are now trying to piece together her movements between those times.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said: “The woman is described as white, in her 50s, with a South African accent. She wore a black top, a short black skirt and was barefoot having left her shoes on the beach.

“She may have appeared disoriented or unsteady. She’s now recovering at home.

“Officers want to hear from you if you saw or spoke with her, or saw her with anyone.
