A jogger is in a serious condition in hospital after being caught in a cord that was tied across a footpath in Exeter.
The 33-year-old woman was crossing a bridge near the Double Locks when she ran into it.
The cord, which was taken from a lifebelt stored near the bridge, was tied at chest height and sent her flying backwards.
She's understood to have suffered a serious neck injury. Police say the cord was a deliberate trap set up to target cyclists and runners.
