Abducted schoolgirl vows to wait for Jeremy Forrest

The 15-year-old schoolgirl who went on the run to France with her 30-year-old teacher is reported to still be in a relationship with her abductor, and has vowed to 'wait for him'.

Married maths teacher Jeremy Forrest was found guilty of child abduction yesterday and has been jailed for five and a half years.

He took the girl - who has since turned 16 - to France last September, after the authorities became aware of their relationship.

A source close to Forrest told The Sun that the pair are 'very much together' and are 'in love'. The mole added that the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, plans to visit him in prison.

It is claimed that the girl sent messages of support to Forrest throughout the court trial, making her feelings about the case known on social media sites.

When prosecutor Richard Barton QC told the hearing that the couple's relationship was 'not Romeo and Juliet', she branded his comments 'moronic', writing:

"It's 'not Romeo and Juliet'? Of course it's not! That's a tragedy and they both f****** died. How moronic."

She also wrote in response to the revelations made in court about the pair's sexual relationship. After the prosecution detailed how Forrest bedded her eight times in one night, she wrote: "I'm no Russell Brand. Honestly don't know whether to laugh or cry. I'm a young girl yes, but I'm no Russell Brand! Honestly in shock!"

Writing the night before she was due to see Forrest in court, the girl revealed she was 'too excited to sleep'.

Prosecutors at Lewes Crown Court labelled Forrest a 'paedophile' during the trial, which culminated in jurors taking less than two hours to find him guilty of abduction.

As the verdict was read out, Forrest and his former pupil mouthed 'I love you' to each other, with her telling him 'I'm sorry' as he was led from the dock.

After the case the girl's mother said the last nine months had been 'her worst nightmare'.
