Police have found 15-year-old schoolgirl Megan Stammers in France, a week after she was first reported missing. Her teacher Jeremy Forrest has been arrested on suspicion of child abduction.

Earlier today it was reported that police were widening their search to Spain after grumbles about the level of cooperation from French authorities. In France the age of consent is 15.

Chief Inspector Jason Tingley said that the French authorities have "a slightly different perspective" because what has happened is not seen as an offence in that country, "but we have their full support and we have that team working with us".

Sussex police now say that the information that led to the discovery of the pair came as a direct result of French media coverage.
