A man found with knives in central London has been detained in hospital.

John Bolton, 48, from Banbury, Oxfordshire, was found with three lock knives at Hyde Park Corner in June.

Bolton went on the run in the summer, prompting police to issue a warrant for his arrest. He was given an indefinite Mental Health order at a hearing at Southwark Crown Court earlier.

Bolton also pleaded guilty to having a commando knife in Parliament Square during 2015 Remembrance Day events.
