The last time Len Jenkins was found wandering the streets near his home in Portishead a concerned stranger made sure he was returned safely.

But Len's son, Keith, worries constantly about his 94-year-old father.

Len's dementia means he cannot always remember where he is. His carers have put signs on his front door telling him not to go out alone but still he occasionally forgets.

Keith, 76, lives 10 miles away and still works, so is not able to watch him constantly.

But he now has a new way to keep an eye on his father. Len was selected by Avon and Somerset Police to receive one of 30 new GPS tracker devices being handed out to people living with dementia.
