Runaway returns

05 October 2012

THE search for Megan Stammers, the 15-year-old student at Bishop Bell C of E School, Eastbourne, who travelled secretly to France with a 30-year-old maths teacher from the same school, Jeremy Forrest ( News, 28 September), ended last weekend after they were found in Bordeaux. Megan returned to her parents on Tuesday, it is understood.

It has been reported that Mr Forrest was not opposing extradition, and was expected to return to Britain shortly. A spokesman for East Sussex Council said that, acting on police advice, they were making no further statements.
