A woman has died after being found unconscious in the street in Newquay.

Police were called to Mount Wise first thing on Tuesday morning.

They found paramedics at the side of a woman slumped in the road.

The area was cordoned off as forensic teams went over the area.

The woman was taken to Treliske but doctors could not save her.

Mount WiseDetectives have revealed the woman had a head injury, but they do not know how she got it.

The 53 year old local woman is believed to have lived at a nearby block of flats.

Duty Inspector Michael Howe at the scene told Pirate FM: "At this time, because we don't know why the lady is deceased we're carrying out an investigation to check there's nothing suspicious there. At this time we just don't know because it's unexplained.

"We've got a cordon on for the road. We realise that will cause some distress through disturbance for the local residents and we'd just like to reassure them that our investigations will be done as quickly as possible and thank them for their co-operation."

Officers are awaiting the results of a postmortem, due to take place on Wednesday.
