Following a police appeal Mr Ashurst has now been found.

Adrian Ashurst, who was reported missing at around 8pm last night, had been reported missing from the Briercliffe Road area of Burnley, specifically Wynotham Street. The police were particularly concerned about his welfare, as Mr Ashurst uses a wheelchair as he struggles to walk short distances.

The police, who put an appeal out after Mr Ashurst was last seen at around 6pm at his home address, confirmed this morning that he has now been found safe and well.
