An elderly man who embarked on an hour and a half journey to visit his daughter was still attempting the journey 30 hours later.

Mr Leighton had become confused on his journey from Berkshire to Kent after missing his turning, he then took a series of wrong turns, which meant him stopping to refuel and taking a much needed nap at a service station.

He had made the journey to his daughter’s house many times before and cameras picked him up only 6 miles away from her house at one point, when police were called to investigate his whereabouts after his worried daughter filed a missing person claim.

He was eventually found in South London, still attempting to drive to his daughter’s house.
