POLICE have launched a hunt for witnesses after an assault left a woman with potentially life-changing injuries.

The woman, who is in her 30s, was found sitting on the pavement.

She has sustained head injuries that are described as potentially life-changing and currently remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.
