Two twin girls missing from their Leicestershire home have been found by police.

Officers previously said they were concerned for the welfare of two 11-year-old girls missing from their Mountsorrel home and were appealing for public help to find them.

Gracie and Millie Bennett were reported missing shortly after 8.30pm last night on May 10.

Officers had released a description of the two girls in a bid to find them but have since revealed that they have both been found.

Chief Inspector Siobhan Gorman said: "I'd like to place on record my thanks to everyone who shared our appeal and the local community for their help in locating both girls."
