Police have stepped in to help an elderly man they found heading to the shops because he had nothing left to eat.

Officers met David on Saturday as he was being helped across the road in Aldershot with his trolley on his way to Morrisons, despite advice urging older people to stay at home.

In a Facebook post, Hampshire police described him as a "dinosaur when it comes to technology" and said he had been unaware that help was available.

The officers did the man's shopping and put him in touch with a charity which is going to help him.
