Police are trying to find a man who went missing from Archway’s Whittington Hospital yesterday.

Timothy Peter Smith, 66, was receiving treatment for tuberculosis but left at 6am before the full treatment could be delivered. He has not been seen since.

Mr Smith should not be approached by members of the public as his treatment for turberculosis was not completed and he may still be contagious.

Anyone who sees him is asked to call London Ambulance Service and police on 999.

Update, 12.30pm: Mr Smith has been found.
