A judge sentences teacher Jeremy Forrest to 5 and a half years in jail for abducting a pupil and taking her to France. He also admitted five charges of sexual assault against the same girl. We hear from a child protection charity, a woman who was groomed by her teacher, and members of Forrest's community, some who say they sympathise with him. We also get reaction to the latest developments in the Care Quality Commission scandal, Patrick Mercer's given his first interview since resigning the whip over lobbying allegations, and we hear from the driver of the car which hit nine children and adults outside a South Wales school.
