London: The schoolgirl who ran away to France with jailed Jeremy Forrest has found love with another teacher.

The girl was aged just 15 when she sparked an international manhunt after eloping with maths teacher Forrest, (31), who is currently serving a five-and-a-half-year sentence for abducting her.

But she is now said to be ‘ridiculously happy’ after falling for a 20-year-old teaching assistant and part-time security guard.

Her mother said, “He is really nice and we have welcomed him into our family and I am very happy for my daughter.”
