The maths teacher who apparently ran away with his 15-year-old pupil Megan Stammers is thought to have blogged about the relationship under a pseudonym.

30-year-old Jeremy Forrest used 'Jeremy Ayre' as a stage-name and a blog post at, written in May, shows signs of a troubled conscience.

Under the title "You hit me just like heroin", it warns that what follows "will have to be a bit vauge to be public-ally digestible".

"About a week ago I had a bit of a moral dilemma to deal with, both internally and externally. And the overiding question it left me with was this; How do we, and how should we, define what is right or wrong, acceptable or unacceptable???"

The author answers: "at the end of the day I was satisfied that if you can look yourself in the mirror and know that, under all the front, that you are a good person, that should have faith in your own judgement."

The blog then reviews a selection of gigs.

The search for Megan Stammers continues.
