Jeremy Forrest: French Court Orders Him Home
A French court has ordered the extradition to the UK of teacher Jeremy Forrest, who disappeared with a 15-year-old girl.
Magistrates in Bordeaux granted the request during a short hearing which Forrest, 30, did not attend.
He was represented by his lawyer Daniel Lalanne who said he did not know when his client would return to Britain but that it would happen "quickly".
Forrest agreed to his extradition at a hearing in the port city on Tuesday.
The maths teacher from Ringmer, East Sussex, disappeared with the youngster on September 20 and was arrested in the southwestern French city last Friday.
It followed the issue of a European Arrest Warrant after the pair failed to use return Dover-Calais ferry tickets.
