A BBC Bristol and Somerset radio presenter who went missing has been found in Cumbria.

Peter Rowell, 52, was found in Keswick at about 2130 BST after being reported missing when he failed to turn up for work on Tuesday.

Mr Rowell, of Wickwar, South Gloucestershire, was believed to be depressed after his father's death.

His wife Mirinda said police had found him and told her he seemed to be "safe and well".

Mr Rowell, originally from Sunderland, has presented the Afternoon Show on BBC Radio Bristol and BBC Somerset since last May and is a well-known face in the West Country.

His family have thanked the public and the media for all their help.
