RUNAWAY teacher Jeremy Forrest will come back to Britain after he agreed to his extradition in a French court today.

Forrest, 30, appeared before magistrates in Bordeaux, four days after he was arrested on suspicion of child abduction.

The maths teacher from Ringmer, East Sussex, who is married, fled to France with 15-year-old pupil Megan Stammers on 20 September.

Police issued a European arrest warrant after the couple failed to use return ferry tickets three days later.

Forrest confirmed his name and nationality before agreeing to return to the UK.

The court is expected to allow extradition on Thursday.
