A body found in the search for a missing man with dementia has been confirmed as that of the missing 91-year-old.

Ged Doran, who had dementia, was last seen a week ago in Garnet Crescent, Salterbeck, Workington.

Officers said a body found on land between High Harrington and Salterbeck had been identified as missing pensioner.

Cumbria Police thanked hundreds of volunteers who joined the search.

The force said Mr Doran's death was not being treated as suspicious and a file would be prepared for the coroner.
