The little girl said that she felt very guilty for making her parents and sister worried, and finished by thanking officers "for keeping everyone safe"

Cheshire Police said all was forgiven.

Forgiveness on our part is not required here, but if you’re reading this we offer it nonetheless and thank you for your kind words which mean so much to us.
