CONCERN is growing for a missing man last seen at an Ambleside hostel last night.

Kevin Allspach, 55, was dropped off at the accommodation late in the evening but did not stay, according to Cumbria police.

He is described as being of slight build, around 5'6" tall, with an 'unkempt' appearance.

He has a shuffling gait and was last seen wearing a dark, waterproof jacket with light markings and light-coloured trousers.

Anyone who sees him is asked to contact police on 101.
