Forrest faces collusion inquiry

Police are investigating whether jailed teacher Jeremy Forrest indirectly contacted the schoolgirl he abducted during court proceedings, to get her to change her story.

Forrest was sentenced to five and a half years in prison for abducting and having sex with the 15-year-old he took to France.

Her evidence fitted with Forrest's defence that he took her to France to prevent her from succumbing to suicidal tendencies.

Emily Unia reports.
