The Queen's husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, has been allowed to go home after spending five nights in hospital.

Prince Philip, who's 91, has been treated for a bladder infection at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary - his third hospital stay in nine months.

He was taken to hospital on Wednesday during the royals' annual summer break at Balmoral in Aberdeenshire.

It is not yet known if he will be fit to attend the Paralympics opening ceremony with the Queen on 29 August.
