A MAN who was found with burns at a Weymouth beauty spot is critical but stable in hospital.

The man, who has not been named, was left fighting for his life after an incident at Furzy Cliff a week ago.

Police, paramedics, firefighters and coastguards were called to Bowleaze Coveway at 7.15am after a man was discovered on the grass area close to the Lookout Café.

It is believed the man drove to the area that morning.

Dorset Police said that a black Citroen C2 registered to the man was recovered at the scene from the bottom of a slight slope.

Ambulance staff said the man had burns all over his body. He was taken to hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries, Dorset Police said.

Officers said the man remains in Dorset County Hospital in a critical but stable condition.
