`No French investigation' into runaway British schoolgirl - UK-FRANCE - FRANCE 24

The French authorities are not investigating the disappearance of a 15-year-old British schoolgirl who ran away with her maths teacher last week because she is over the legal age of consent in France.

Megan Stammers, from Sussex in southeast England, and her teacher Jeremy Forrest, 30, were caught on CCTV on the cross-channel ferry from Dover to Calais in northern France last Thursday.

And while a major investigation is under way in the UK, Sussex police confirmed that Stammers' disappearance was not being treated the same way in France because the couple have not broken any French laws.
