Police making 'good progress' over runaway pupils

Police are making "good progress" in attempts to contact two teenagers who ran away from a boarding school and flew to the Caribbean, a senior teacher at the school has said.

Edward Bunyan and Indira Gainiyeva, 16, are believed to be in the Dominican Republic after vanishing from Stonyhurst College in Lancashire in the early hours of Monday.

The college's second master Matthew Mostyn said: "I believe that they [the police] are making good progress in making contact with them.

He also told BBC Radio 4's Today programme there was "excellent security" at the school but it was not designed to keep pupils in.

"Where there's a will there's a way, but obviously there will be a full review of our procedures in every respect as soon as we can get that going", he added.
