A woman suffered serious injuries after a trailer came unhitched and ran her over in Mortehoe yesterday (Sunday).

The incident happened at around 10.45pm at Easewell Farm Holiday Park.

It is thought the trailer became detached from a silver Ford Focus, registered to Staffordshire, and rolled backwards down a slope.

The woman, believed to be in her early 40s, was taken to hospital with a serious pelvic injury and hand and foot injuries.

A police spokesman said her injuries were not life threatening or life changing.
