Nine teenagers were being hunted by police last night after taking a minibus and absconding from a special school.

The search was launched at midnight on Sunday after a teacher discovered eight boys and three girls, aged 14 and 15, had gone missing from Catsbrook School, near Shifnal, Shropshire. The school is run by the Wrexham-based Bryn-Alyn organisation. Two of the girls were picked up by police yesterday afternoon at Woodall service station on the M1 near Chesterfield.
