Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances, and officers are asking anyone who saw what happened to contact police.

Detective Inspector Craig Nicolson said: “It’s vital we find out exactly how this woman has come to be injured and I would appeal to anyone who saw what happened to come forward.

“Despite this happening in the early hours, we know there were other vehicles on the road and there were people coming and going from the location of last weekend’s Eden Festival site.
