Two missing 11-year-old girls have been found safe and well after a police appeal.
Constantia Carr-Winterburn, of Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire, and Lillie Almond, of Dove Holes, left their home addresses to go to school this morning.
Their families have not heard from the two friends since, police said in an appeal shortly before 9pm today.
The girls, who go to the same school, were thought to be together.
Police said in a statement: “We are very concerned for their safety and we would ask you to share this appeal and to contact us if you have any information as to their whereabouts.
