Woman found in distressed state in Lancaster

Detectives are appealing for information after a woman was found in a distressed state in Lancaster.

Around 3.00am on Thursday 5th December, a 22 year old woman was found by a man on Caton Road who had concerns for her welfare.

The woman was taken to Royal Lancaster Infirmary, although at this stage it is unclear as to exactly what has happened to her.

An investigation is underway and police are appealing for anybody with any information to come forward.

Detective Inspector Andrew Bunn said: “The circumstances of this incident remain unclear at this time and we are still trying to establish exactly what may have occurred.

“If anybody thinks they may have seen this young woman in the Caton Road area around 3.00am on Thursday morning and can provide us with information they think could assist our investigation then I would urge them to contact police.

“I am particularly keen to speak with the man who found the woman. We believe he may have been driving a Maxi lorry. If this was you, or you know who this was, then please come forward.”

Anybody with any information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at

No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court
