A married teacher fled to France with a teenage pupil the day after police questioned her about the nature of their relationship, a court has heard.
Jeremy Forrest, 30, and the girl, who cannot be named, took a cross-Channel ferry to Calais before spending seven days on the run.
Prosecutor Richard Barton told a jury at Lewes Crown Court that this wasn't a tale of "Romeo and Juliet".
"This is is a 15-year-old girl with her own vulnerabilities, and a 30-year-old teacher," he added.
