An American man with dementia was flown to Britain and left in a car park by his wife and son, according to US court documents.

Roger Curry was allegedly abandoned in the car park of Hereford bus station on 7 November 2015 after travelling from his home in Los Angeles with his family.

Legal documents seen by the BBC’s Panorama programme and filed in Los Angeles state: “In late 2015 Mr Curry was taken surreptitiously to England by his wife Mary Curry and his son Kevin Curry and abandoned there.”

The 76-year-old, who did not know his name or where he was, was found in the company of two men who flagged down a passing ambulance. One of the men – described as having an American accent, but younger than Curry – allegedly vanished from the scene.

Curry was taken into the care of a nursing home while police and social services spent months trying to find out who he was. He was finally flown back to America eight months later and is in the care of authorities in Los Angeles.
