An injured pensioner went missing last night after an argument at his care home in New North Road turned violent.

Update: Mr Morrison has now been found, police have confirmed.

Sean Morrison, 71, was left with head and chest injuries during the fight, police said.

But when they got to the home, Mr Morrison had left. Cops say he needs daily medication for a mental health condition and that they are “increasingly concerned” about his well being.

He walked out at just before 9pm.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “He is described as a white man, 5ft 5ins in height and of slim build.

“He is originally from Dublin and speaks with an Irish accent.”

Anyone with information about Mr Morrison is asked to call police on 101 or contact the charity Missing People on 116000.
