An appeal was made to help find dementia sufferer Jimmy Annan, of the Gloucester Road area of Consett, County Durham.

It was feared that he may have caught a bus from Consett bus station to Newcastle shortly before 1.30pm today (Tuesday, February 19).

A spokesman for Durham Police said that Mr Annan, who is originally from Newcastle, was found "fit and well" and thanked everyone for their assistance.
