The case of Jeremy Forrest and the girl, referred to in the report as Child G,
attracted worldwide attention after he abducted her to France and they spent
seven days on the run.
They dyed their hair, gave themselves false names on CVs to try to get work, and Forrest threw his mobile phone into the English Channel to prevent its signal betraying their whereabouts.
The report reserves particular criticism for the school, with some staff failing to recognise the child protection implications in some events and believing Forrest was the victim.
