Ruth Smith, who had not been seen since leaving her home in the West Midlands five weeks ago was found ‘safe and well’ in Blackpool yesterday, police have confirmed.

Officers appealed for the public’s help in finding the 42-year-old after she left home carrying two carrier bags full of clothes.

Ms Smith, from Aldridge, had never gone missing before and may have been sleeping rough, a police spokesman said.

The breakthrough was reported by officers shortly before 9.30am today.
