A schoolboy who ran away from home because he was “bored of his life” says he slept rough in some of Britain's biggest cities.

Arthur Heeler-Frood had been missing from his home in Axminster, Devon, for more than two months but was found in Honiton on Tuesday - just 10 miles away.

The 15-year-old said: “I have spent the last 10 weeks exploring London, Birmingham and Manchester by foot, sleeping rough at night.”
