Warrington was seen on CCTV leaving the unit through the front door in reception but the alarm was not raised until midnight when staff realised he was missing.

He had taken a taxi from to Bourton-on-the-Water, which he had booked that morning in the name of “Peter”, at 9.45pm.
The killer bought two bottles of brandy and two cans of Red Bull while on the journey before being dropped five minutes from his mum’s home.
Anna Vigars KC, prosecuting, said: “He broke into the house and he killed his mother.
“He has given different accounts and having killed Valerie Warrington he fell asleep in the house before leaving in the car and driving over her body on the lawn.”
Warrington then made his way to his dad’s home the following morning and bought a bottle of wine.

Police were scrambled to the house in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, where they later found blood-covered Warrington wandering along a road.
Valerie was then found with knife wounds after police attended her home following a concern for welfare.
A post-mortem found Clive had suffered knife wounds to his head, face and eyes and his throat had been cut.
His ex-wife also had injuries to her eyes, her throat had been cut and she had been run over by a car.
Warrington has been at Broadmoor Hospital since he knifed his parents on March 2.
