A 93-year-old woman who was badly beaten as she slept in her own bed has died in hospital from complications from her injuries.

Emma Winnall, who was attacked in Moseley, Birmingham, nearly a month ago, died early this morning, said West Midlands police.

She has been in intensive care since May 1 when she was found badly injured at her home.

Superintendent Richard Baker, Head of Major Crime at West Midlands Police, said: "This is desperately sad news. Our condolences go out to Emma's family and friends.”

A 56-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man from the Hall Green of Birmingham were arrested in connection with the offence earlier this month and are due to answer police bail in July.
