A mother who was arrested on suspicion of abduction after going missing with her sons for more than a week has been bailed.

Samantha Baldwin, 40, and her sons were found at "secluded accommodation" near Ollerton in Nottinghamshire.

Their disappearance on 27 March sparked a Europe-wide police hunt involving more than 100 officers.

Two other women, aged 62 and 36, who were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender, remain on bail.

Police said the boys were found at a cabin at a small holiday business following a tip-off and had not been physically harmed.

They are now being looked after by childcare professionals.
