Runaway teacher charged with child abduction
Thursday 11 October 2012
Jeremy Forrest, the runaway teacher arrested in France on suspicion of abducting schoolgirl Megan Stammers, was charged with child abduction last night.
The 30-year-old from Ringmer, East Sussex, is due to appear at Eastbourne magistrates' court this morning after disappearing with the 15-year-old on 20 September.
Forrest was led off a flight from Bordeaux at Gatwick airport with a coat over his head and was taken away in a police van which had been waiting for him on the tarmac. He had been held in France following the issuing of a European Arrest Warrant.
