The mother of the 15-year-old who ran off to France with her teacher Jeremy Forrest has written a book.

The Bishop Bell maths teacher was found guilty of abduction and admitted sexual offences against his teenage pupil back in 2012. The pair made national news when they ran away together in 2012.

Named The Runaway Schoolgirl, the book details the abduction, the search for the pair, the trial at which Forrest was sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison and how the family came to terms with what had happened.

The names in the book have been changed for legal reasons and the mother refers to her daughter as Gemma to protect her identity.

The book, written under the name of Davina Williams, will be released in February priced at £16.99.
