A teenager who went missing from home for more than a week has been found safe and well in the last hour.

Robbie Duke, 13, disappeared from his home in Carshalton last Wednesday and is believed to have been sleeping rough or staying with acquaintances on the Shanklin estate near Belmont.

A large-scale search was launched and he was found by police officers in the town centre just before 1pm.

He has been taken into the care of the police.
