The body of an elderly man has been discovered in a field two days after he left his care home.

Ernest Upward, who was known as Michael, and was from Pershore in Worcestershire, suffered from dementia.

Police scrambled a helicopter in their attempt to find 82-year-old Mr Upward, who went missing after going to sit in the garden of a home in Holly Green, Upton upon Severn.

His death is not being treated as suspicious, West Mercia Police said.
