Search teams who have been looking for a missing man in Surrey for several days have found a body.

Michael Hayward, 43, from Byfleet, disappeared on 8 June. Mr Hayward, who has diabetes, had told his partner he was feeling unwell that day.

Officers found the body of a man, who has not yet been formally identified, in woodland near Ockham on Saturday.

Surrey Police said a post-mortem examination would be held but the death was not being treated as suspicious.

Teams of officers and dogs began searching common land in the Wisley and Ockham areas earlier this month after Mr Hayward's car was found in a Wisley car park.
