Actor Kevin Whately has been in Milton Keynes to open a housing scheme for people living with dementia.

The Inspector Morse star, whose mother suffered from dementia for 12 years, said Flowers House was joined-up thinking and a "care home for the future".

Dementia patients will start moving in to the unit, which cost more than £3m, on Monday.
