Ringmer teacher Jeremy Forrest in court on abduction charge
7:19am Thursday 11th October 2012 in News
Runaway teacher Jeremy Forrest will appear in court today charged with the abduction of a child.
The 30-year-old married amateur musician, from Ringmer, near Lewes, went on the run with a child on September 20.
The maths teacher was extradited to the UK yesterday from France, where the pair were found eight days after their disappearance.
He will appear at Eastbourne Magistrates' Court today charged with child abduction.
The pair's disappearance sparked a Europe-wide search. They were eventually found in Bordeaux, eight days after disappearing.
In France, Forrest was held on suspicion of child abduction following the issuing of a European arrest warrant and was detained at Gradignan prison on the outskirts of Bordeaux.
He arrived back in the UK yesterday afternoon, flying into Gatwick.
