A woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man died following the suspected robbery of his mobility scooter, police have said.

The man, in his 60s, was found unresponsive in a Tesco superstore car park in Stratford Road, Stroud, in the early hours of Sunday, Gloucestershire Police said.

His black mobility scooter was absent.

He died later that day after being taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital by paramedics.

His next of kin have been informed.

A woman from Stroud has been arrested on suspicion of robbery and murder and remains in police custody, officers said.

A mobility scooter, thought to be the victim's, was found abandoned on Bisley Old Road by a member of the public shortly before 8am on Sunday.

"It is believed that the victim was the subject of a robbery and his mobility scooter was taken," Gloucestershire Police said.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who saw a mobility scooter with a basket on the front being used by someone in the Paganhill area of Stroud between about 2am and 4am on Sunday.

Detectives are asking people who live in the area to look at doorbell camera video and CCTV to see if they have any footage of the scooter.

They are also keen to hear from any motorists who were driving in the area and may have dashcam footage.
