Two brothers and their sister who went missing last week have been found safe and well.

Sussex Police launched an appeal for information after three siblings went missing last week.

Ben and James Reade, who are 15 and 14, left their home in North Lane, Guestling near Hastings, on Thursday evening.

At around 8.30am the next morning their sister Jemima, 16, was being taken to school by her foster mum when she saw the pair in a field near Butcher's Lane.

She got out the car and had not been seen until last night.

At about 9pm last night, Hastings-based Sergeant Jane Batcheler announced the good news that the trio had been found.

She said: "The 3 missing teenagers have been found safe and well. Big thanks to everyone who called in with information."
