A pensioner, who went missing on his mobility scooter at Land's End, has turned up more than 20 miles away.

Both Sennen lifeboats, coastguards, police and a helicopter joined in the hunt for the man in his seventies on Thursday evening.

He was finally found in a Camborne hotel, some 23 miles away.

It is thought he had driven his scooter up the A30.

Officials think that was the limit of what his scooter was capable of doing.
