The study, by the Universities of Warwick and Oxford, published in the British Medical Journal found that among patients with mild to moderate dementia an exercise programme did not halt the progress of their condition.

Participants who had taken part in an exercise programme had slightly worse scores in an Alzheimer's assessment when they were tested a year later.

Patients from memory clinics across 15 regions of England were invited to take part in the study.
