The Duke of Edinburgh has been discharged from hospital after spending two nights being treated for an unspecified infection.

Philip was admitted as a precautionary measure on Tuesday night, on the advice of a doctor, after falling ill with an infection arising from a pre-existing condition.

The Duke left from the rear of the private King Edward VII's Hospital in central London just before 10am on Thursday, and was driven away.
