A 89-year-old war veteran found in Normandy after being reported missing by staff at his care home in Hove, Sussex, is making his way home "to face the music".
Bernard Jordan was reported missing on Thursday night by staff at The Pines care home in Hove, Sussex, after embarking on his cross-channel trip for the 70th anniversary of D-Day.
Arriving at Portsmouth he said he had a great time, and intended to do it again next year.
The former Royal Navy officer said that he would have to face the music when he returned to the home. He said:
"Yeah, I'm going to have to face that but it's just one of those things."
The D-Day veteran who caused a furore by sneaking off from his care home to Normandy last week explains why he made the "secretive" journey.
An 89-year-old veteran reported missing from a nursing home was found in France, marking the anniversary of the D-Day landings.
