The family of an 86-year-old man who suffered a stroke in the lavatory of a doctors' surgery and lay undetected for 30 hours is considering legal action over the incident. A police search was launched when John Ross failed to return to his home at Methil, near Kirkcaldy, after going to collect a prescription at the Muiredge surgery in Buckhaven.

Mr Ross is now unconscious, but stable, in hospital. The four doctors at the surgery have launched an investigation and apologised to the family for the "regrettable incident".
