Police have appealed for help to trace a missing woman who has a history of sleepwalking. Staffordshire Police said Wendy Richards, 43, was last seen at her home in Stretton, Burton-upon-Trent, at around 9.30pm last night.

Ms Richards is described as white, about 5ft 5ins, slim, with shoulder-length brown hair, and is believed to be wearing blue flowery long-sleeved pyjamas, and a brown dressing gown
