A missing Hampshire man has been found safe and well by police in Southampton.

Agoraphobic Wayne Noke, 32, had not been far from his family home in Weston for 15 years before he went missing on Sunday, officers said.

He was found in Southampton city centre earlier after a member of the public recognised him following media coverage of his disappearance.

Police used a helicopter, dogs and rescue teams to search for Mr Noke, who has now been returned to his home.
