Police have say that a holidaymaker who had been missing for almost a month has now been found. 

Officers had stepped up their search for missing Nigel Williams, who had been missing from Wales since Friday, July 17 and was thought to be in the West Cornwall area.

They asked guest houses and B&Bs to look at their records to see if the 50-year-old had been stayed there and appealed to anyone who saw him to call 999.
