A MAN was recovering in hospital last night after being found unconscious on his bathroom floor.

Water from the bathroom and groaning alerted a neighbour to the man's plight in East Cowton, near Northallerton, North Yorkshire.

Police found the middle-aged man on the ground with a head injury.

He was taken by air ambulance to the James Cook University Hospital, in Middlesbrough, where last night he was in a stable condition.

Police are investigating how the man came to be injured.
