|Fears grow for missing presenter |
(about 2 hours later)
Fears are growing for children's TV presenter Mark Speight who was reported missing two days ago.
Appealing for information on Tuesday, his family said he was in a "vulnerable" state following the death of his fiancee Natasha Collins.
Speight found Miss Collins, 31, dead in the bath at their flat in north London, in January, after she had taken drugs.
The 42-year-old presenter was last seen walking along Chamberlayne Road, Kensal Rise, north-west London, on Monday.

He had found her with hot water burns after they had both taken cocaine and sleeping tablets.
Speight was arrested on suspicion of murder and supplying Class A drugs but no charges were brought.
In a statement read on Tuesday both families said they were "deeply concerned" for Speight who was in a "fragile state of mind".

Ms Collins' mother Carmen, 57, who Speight had been staying with since the death, then urged him to "please get in touch with us".
Police were alerted when he failed to meet Mrs Collins for a coffee in Covent Garden at 1500 BST on Monday.
He had been dropped off at Wood Green station, north London, on Monday morning and was later seen walking towards Chelmsford Square in Kensal Rise at about 1315 BST.
Speight, who is 6ft, was wearing a brown suit jacket with dark jeans and a brown flat cap.
