Probe after man found unconscious

Police are trying to piece together what happened to a man found unconscious in a lane with a head injury.

The 43-year-old was discovered by passers-by, lying in Marshall's Lane, Paisley, shortly after midnight on Sunday.

He was taken by ambulance to the Royal Alexandra Hospital, where staff describe his condition as critical.

Strathclyde Police said they have yet to clarify how the man sustained his injuries.

Detective Inspector Julie Henry, of Paisley CID, said: "We know that he had been in the Turf Tavern on Saturday evening but do not know if he was in the company of others. He was wearing a blue top with a motif and blue jeans.

"Marshall's Lane is literally outside the Tavern and I would appeal to anyone who was in the Turf Tavern last night and has any information that could assist in this investigation to come forward.

"Many people would have been leaving the pub around midnight and may have seen the man in the lane. I would ask them to come forward. They may be able to throw some light on what happened to this man."
