Police found a missing woman at the same time a round of applause sounded across the country for NHS workers.

Earlier this evening, Essex Police had appealed for help to find Jennifer Conway, 76, from Manningtree.

She was found safe, at around 8pm, after a social media appeal reached thousands.


A spokesman said: "We really appreciate the Facebook shares, 1,600 plus people helped get her missing person post as far as possible - thank you.

"Our officers located her at around the time communities were clapping for frontline workers."
