A hunt is under way for a sex offender who has gone missing from the Hampshire hospital he was detained at after being convicted of child sex offences.

Stephen Munden, 54, has not been seen since leaving the independent hospital at Winchfield, near Hook, on Tuesday.

He received a hospital order in 2014 after being convicted for possessing indecent images of children and sexual assault on a child under 13.

Police said they were trying to trace him as a "matter of urgency".
