Mr Forrest’s French lawyer, Daniel Lalanne, apparently told reporters:

This is a story of love and passion. It is as old as the world and I believe that that can never be stopped. In his [Jeremy Forrest] head he did nothing wrong except fall in love with a 15-year-old

He added that Mr Forrest is happy about the prospect of being extradited to the UK to be "closer to the one he loves".
