The second absconder from a secure hospital unit has been found after a police appeal.

Neil Emery, 46, and Jason Bratton, 36, escaped from a psychiatric intensive care ward run by Surrey and Borders NHS Foundation Trust at Epsom Hospital on Wednesday.

The men have violent pasts, had been detained under the Mental Health Act and left without the medication they need to control their mental illnesses.

Richmond and Twickenham Times:

Neil Emery was found in Aldershot at 12.43pm

Mr Emery was found in Dorking at 10.23am after a member of the public saw the appeal on social media and called the police. He has been returned to the secure unit.

Mr Emery has links to Woking and Richmond.

Mr Bratton was found in Aldershot at 12.43pm following intelligence-led enquiries by Surrey and Hampshire officers.

Detective Inspector Peter Harvey, who led the investigation, said: "We would like to thank the public for their help in this search, without which we would not have been able to locate the two men as quickly."
