Missing 15 year old schoolgirl Megan Stammers has been found safe and well in France and taken into protection, according to Sussex Police. The 15-year-old was found with teacher Jeremy Forrest today. Mr Forrest, 30, was arrested on suspicion of child abduction.

Megan had been reported missing after failing to turn up for school on Friday last week. And it is believed the information which led to them being found came as a direct result of media coverage in France and on British television.

Following the disappearance, Megan's friends and family used Facebook and Twitter to help the police search. On the news of her discovery Megan's stepfather Martin Stammers wrote on Twitter: "Thank you everyone for everything, massive relief and thrilled to bits, more to follow later."

At the moment it is unclear where Megan and Jeremy Forrest will be taken to next, but it is understood they will be making their way back to the UK at any time.
