She was subsequently taken to hospital, where she is still receiving treatment.

Detectives from Leicestershire Polices Complex Investigation Team (CIT) are appealing for information as they try to establish how the woman, who is in her 20s, suffered the serious injuries.

They are keen to speak to anyone who saw a white van in the area.

Detective Constable Sarah Jones said: “The woman was found in a residential area, so I am keen to speak to anyone who saw what happened.

"If you have a doorbell camera or dashcam and were driving through the area at the time, then I’d like to speak to you. Did you see a white van in Ferness Road or the surrounding streets?

“I would also ask anyone who saw or heard anything unusual, untoward or suspicious to come forward. You may have information that could assist our investigation.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
