Megan's teacher thinks he 'did nothing wrong' but fall in love

Megan Stammer's teacher, Jeremy Forrest, does not believe he did anything wrong in fleeing to France with her, the Times reports (£).

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".
