A 23-year-old patient who absconded from a secure hospital unit in Surrey has been found.

Luke Elsmore, who requires various medications, was detained under the Mental Health Act but disappeared from Farmfield Hospital in Horley on Friday.

A Surrey Police spokesman said he was located in Worthing earlier.

The force had previously said Mr Elsmore had a history of violence but there was no indication of any direct threat to the public.
