A 77-year-old man who went missing yesterday afternoon has been found safe and well.

David Wood, of Barlow, left his wife outside the Nat West bank in Dronfield town centre at about 3pm and wasn’t seen until he was found in South Yorkshire at about 10pm last night.

It is believed he had been trying to walk home in the freezing temperatures.
