Megan Stammers is seduced by fame

by | 27th, September 2012

MEGAN Stammers is a white 15-year-old on the lam in France with Jeremy Forrest, her maths teacher at Bishop Bell School, near Eastbourne. The police and her parents want Megan to come home. But how to make it happen? One way is to assure her that Forrest will not be busted for a crime when he returns.

The Evening Standard notes:

The age of consent in France is 15, so their relationship is not against the law.

Jean-Philippe Joubert, state prosecutor for Boulogne-sur-Mer, tells us:

“These people have been put on a missing persons’ list and a European Arrest Warrant has been issued. But there are no dedicated detectives or specific searches going on right now. But if the couple are recognised and identified, then they will be arrested.”

Martin Stammers, Megan’s step-father, worked with Forest at The Causeway School in Eastbourne:

“I knew Forrest as a colleague. He worked at a twin school. He did some work for us about two years ago. He seemed a nice enough fellow – there was nothing out of the ordinary about him. But this is all about Megan and getting her back – then the police can deal with him.’

The other way to bring Megan home is to get a famous face, someone like Francesca Sandford of the Saturdays, to tweet:

“Megan, on behalf of myself, Mollie, Vanessa, Una and Roch, please come home or call your mum. Everyone is so worried about you! Lots of love x.”

If that fails, there’s only one thing for it: Beckham.

Elsewhere the Mail quotes a “pupil” on Twitter, who says:

“The guy used to give me a birthday card every year, he never forgot! Now I think he just wanted to take me to France.”

France is not a euphemism.
