Two missing girls found by police in Essex

Two teenage girls who went missing from a mental health hospital in East Sussex have been found safe and well.

The 14-year-old from Kent and the 16-year-old from Essex went missing together on Tuesday.

Sussex Police said the pair, who were patients of The Priory Hospital in Ticehurst, had been located in Essex.

Police appealed for information on the girls on Sunday amid concerns for their welfare after a period of six days with no apparent sightings.
