Police searching for an elderly man who went missing from his Suffolk care home have found a body.

George Young, 86, who suffered from Alzheimer's, was last seen in Aldeburgh on Friday night.

He left the Garrett House Care Home in Park Road at around 6pm to go for a walk, but never returned.

A body has since been found in the water near the Martello Tower at Orford Ness. Suffolk Police say they believe it is him and are not treating the death as suspicious.

They are working to trace his next of kin and the coroner has been informed.

The light goes out on a coastal landmark

For almost four hundred years sailors off the Suffolk coast have plotted their course by its light. But next week, the lighthouse at Orford Ness will be switched off for good.

The building is under threat from coastal erosion, so its owners, Trinity House, have taken the decision to let nature take its course.
