Lampl is found

Chair of Sutton Trust reappears at Victoria Station

The founder and chair of education charity the Sutton Trust, Sir Peter Lampl, has been found after disappearing from his home at the weekend.

Police had appealed for information about Lampl only 36 hours after he went missing from his home in Wimbledon on Sunday morning, saying he was on long-term medication for depression, which he had not taken with him.

He was spotted by a woman at Victoria Station in London and contacted staff at the trust to inform them he was safe.

Lampl, who made millions from private equity, formed the Sutton Trust in 1997 to help with the education of underprivileged children. He received a knighthood in 2003.

He contributes about £2m a year to the trust, which he formed after visiting his former Oxford University college Corpus Christi and coming away with the perception that it was a club for students from well-off families.

The charity provides a summer school for gifted children from poor backgrounds and sponsors research into social mobility.
