Two school pupils who ran away from a Ribble Valley boarding school to the Caribbean have been found.

Students Edward Bunyan and Indira Gainiyeva, both 16, were last seen at Manchester Airport at 3am last Monday.

A Lancashire police spokesman said: “The students have thankfully been located safe and well at a hotel in the Punta Cana area of the Dominican Republic.

“Plans are now being made for their safe return to the UK. They will be given a welfare de-brief by police following their arrival back in this country.

“Our priority throughout this has been to ensure the safety and welfare of these students and after they have been spoken to on their return this will signal an end of police involvement in this matter.”
