The sister of jailed teacher Jeremy Forrest has told Daybreak that his family would stand by him if he chose to marry the 15-year-old he was charged with abducting.
Carrie Hanspaul said: “If they’ve managed to survive all of this and if he stays in there [prison] all that time – she’ll be 21, he’ll be 35, there are age gaps like that.
“That then would become a normal relationship and we would obviously support them if that’s what they choose to do.”
