MISSING schoolgirl Megan Stammers and her teacher Jeremy Forrest have been found in France.

The 15-year-old has been taken into protection and Forrest, 30 and a former teacher at Bishop Justus School in Bromley, has been arrested on suspicion of child abduction.

The pair was found "safe and well" at around 12.15pm today, Sussex Police have said.

Police would not reveal their exact location.

They were found as a result of the French exposure to the case.

Forrest and Megan's families have been informed and arrangements will be made for their return to the UK, police confirmed.
