A pensioner who has been missing for almost a week after walking out of hospital has been found.

Kenneth Kearsley, 85, who was last seen at around 9am on Tuesday leaving Whittington Hospital, has been returned to the hospital’s care.

Officers were growing increasingly concerned about his welfare after he was spotted in Islington Cemetery on Friday with a cut to his head.

Mr Kearsley, who suffers from dementia, left the hospital without any money or a mobile phone, and was thought to be heading towards Highgate Village.
