A massive police hunt – that also included many volunteers – has found a missing Doddington woman safe and well.

Cambridgeshire Police reported within the past hour that Wendy Simms, 52, and missing from her home in Ancaster Way since yesterday lunchtime has been found.

The police helicopter that involved in the search both yesterday and until late evening had been back in the skies today.

Searchers on the ground also included CamSar, the Cambridgeshire search and rescue group.

One police officer said tonight: “People do and will continue to knock the police, but in incidents like this they really do earn their money.”
