A MAN who was in a coma with serious head injuries after being found on rocks in Plymouth has been named.
Murray Chapman was found by two girls at around 8.10pm on Sunday January 20 on rocks below The Terrace cafe, on Madeira Road.
The 63-year-old had suffered what police described as "serious head injuries" and taken to Derriford Hospital where he remained in a coma.

Officers are asking anyone who was in the area at the time between 6pm and 8.20pm to contact them.
