The 28-year-old had been sectioned at Belgravia Police Station after being arrested on 30 June and transferred to the hospital the same day.

Landu needs daily medication for mental health issues which he does not have in his possession.

He is not known to have any money or other items on him as property was removed from him at the hospital.
