All this is a long way from my original post.

The use of the word "elderly" in a press release by the police and by the editors of W4.com is both irrelvant and pejorative. There was no good reason to refer to the man in this way. All that was necessary was to report that "A 70-year old man" who had gone astray had been found safe and sound.

I hope that someone somewhere will see this posting and try to act on it - particularly the police in Chiswick and the news editor (if there is one) on W4.com
