Runaway schoolgirl had used social network to thank supporters

Runaway schoolgirl Megan Stammers, who was found in France with her maths teacher, has taken to Twitter to thank everybody for their support.

Writing on the social networking site under the username p4perlanterns, the 15-year-old schoolgirl said: 'Thanks for all the nice messages of support, it's meant a lot to me and my family, we really appreciate it'.

She later tweeted: 'Ps. My only Twitter account is THIS one I'm using. I don't have another.'

But she has since deleted her account after receiving abusive messages from internet trolls.

The teenager has been reunited with her family and has now returned back to her home in Eastbourne, Sussex after reportedly spending four days in a safe house.

Meanwhile Jeremy Forrest, her 30-year-old maths teacher, has been dumped by his wife and is awaiting extradition to the UK after being arrested on suspicion of abduction.

The pair had boarded a ferry from Dover to Calais on September 20, then travelling through France staying in hostels while Forrest looked for bar work under a psuedonym.
